Let There Be Light

"Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light." Genesis 1:3

You can't talk about God without talking about light. He brought light out of darkness in the creation of the earth. Darkness cannot co-exist with God. It is impossible. "God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all"(1 John 1:5b).  His kingdom is described as "marvelous light" (1 Peter 2:9). He sheds the light of His truth to all the world. When Christ returns "He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of the heart" (1 Corinthians 4:5b). Those who belong to the Lord are the holders of His light. Jesus said, "You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven" (Matthew 5:14-16). Are you shining God's light?
