John 8:12

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world:  he that follweth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

Walk in the light.  Forsake the deeds of darkness.  God has promised life to those who will put away their old lives and trust on His life.  His Son will send all darkness scurrying to the uttermost parts of the earth.  He will be a lamp unto thy feet.  It is Christ Himself who will lead His people from the very shadow of death unto the Light everlasting.  Hallelujah ! What a savior!

John 16:7

It is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you, but if I depart, I will send Him to you. 

When Jesus left this world, He went to the Father.  His ascension was to a certain place for a particular reason.  To ascend did not mean merely “to go up.”  He was being elevated to the right hand of the Father.  The seat He occupies on His departure is the royal throne of cosmic authority.  It is the office of the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.
