Life on earth began with and is sustained by light. When God said, “Let there be light,” He bore testimony to us that He is the only source of light and life. The apostle John declares in 1 John 1:5 “God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.”
God said, “Let there be light: and there was light” (Genesis 1:3). “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?” (Psalm 27:1). “In thy light shall we see light” (Psalm 36:9). “O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me” (Psalm 43:3). “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path” (Psalm 119:105). “But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day” (Proverbs 4:18). “Ye are the light of the world” (Matthew 5:14). Jesus said, “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). “Ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light” (1 Peter 2:9). “If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin” (1 John 1:7).
Golden thought: The Lord is my light.
