The Light Of The World

Christ comes

 

In the RCAMS Inventory of Roxburghshire of 1956, there is a detailed description of the Scottish ruin of Melrose Abbey that notes the presence of a carved stone scroll on the magnificent south transept gable bearing this text, in Latin: “When Jesus comes, the shadow will yield and depart.” Sadly, the scroll has since disappeared, but the profound truth upon it is still etched on the heart of every believer.

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, “I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” — John 8:12
