Indeed, David would have understood this metaphor to ultimately refer to his future Descendant (the promised â€śSon of Davidâ€ť) who would be the True Light of the world (Psalm 132:17, John 1:9, 8:12, 12:46).
Living in view of Godâ€™s Light itself gives us light to see (John 3:20-21). Jesus is the brightness of Godâ€™s glory and the express image of his Person, who upholds all things by the word of his power (Heb. 1:3). Beholding the radiance of the Lord Jesus drives away our inner darkness, feeds our soul, and enables us to have authentic communion with a holy God.
