Devotional: Light of the World

Did you know God spoke light into existence? From the beginning in Genesis 1:3-4, it states "And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness."

Light is known to illuminate the darkness. As a matter of fact, if you google the definition for light, it states it as "something that makes vision possible." 1 John 1:5 tells us that "God is light." You see when we look at a light we see God's truth. It is the truth of what He has done and will continue to do for future generations.

Oh, you're still reading.. good! So what's up with light and its true significance. Simple. In John 8:12 Jesus tells us exactly who he is: "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." Amen to that right?! Jesus is the light of the world.

Rush on over and read John 3:19: "This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil."

Light is a common metaphor in the Bible and is used numerous times to describe holiness, faith, truth, etc. For example, Jesus used light metaphorically to describe good works. In Matthew 5:16, Jesus says: “Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds.”

Sorry to break it to you, but we are sinful by nature. We were born into a world surrounded by darkness and where the ultimate price for sin is death. BUT, there is good news (light) at the end of the tunnel and his name is Jesus. Hallelujah! Am I right?!

Haven't you read his promises? Whoever follows him won't need to walk in darkness. Girl, there is no other source of spiritual truth available apart from him. I don't know about you, but count me in!

Physical light is necessary to see around our surroundings. However, spiritual light is how we see the road that leads us to heaven. I am so grateful that even in the darkness, we are not alone. Even in the middle of the storms, our Jesus sustains us.
