A Lamp that burns and gives light to others

John was a lamp that burned and gave light, and you chose for a time to enjoy his light.
[John 5:35]

A Lamp is known to everyone especially in the interior villages where they cannot imagine a day without a lamp especially in the night times. Even to us in the cities also we have a revised version of lamp which we call as candles. Now a days power cut is a normal scenario, and if its during night times then the first thing we go look for is a candle or lamp if we have one. I remember my parents buying a small lamp model in my childhood. IT was very similar to the one we see in villages. It needed fuel (kerosene) to burn, which we use to fill everyday as we have power cut regularly.

The verse in context also talks about a lamp and the use of it especially the heat (burned) and vision (light) that others around that lamp got. Now based on the above explanations we can highlight few words which are Lamp, Light, Fuel and Night. All these are very common words and we in our daily life either experience or talk about it. Have we ever tried to link all these and understand the deeper knowledge and revelation that these words have in them. Let me try to help you understand as per my knowledge.
