I John 1:5 ” This is the message we have heard from Him and declare to you: God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all.”

When you have night blindness,  you have limited visibility in the dark…and take it from me, it makes driving at night very difficult at times.  When we’re walking in the darkness of sin it’s much like having night blindness…we’re unsure of where we’re going, we’re full of fear, and we’re apprehensive about what’s up ahead.  But the blindness of sin can be overcome by the light of God…for this light depicts the very essence of His character and holiness.  And when we walk in that spiritual illumination of God’s light, our path is made sure.

Genesis 1:3 ” And God said, ‘Let there be light’, and there was light.”

God is associated with light, for He created it. But then in I John 1:5,  God is called the Light.  While in John 8:12,  Jesus called Himself the Light of the world.  This type of light defines life, salvation, prosperity, wisdom, and justice and something every Believer should be striving for.  But how?  II Corinthians 4:6 tells us, ” For God, Who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness’, made His light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.”  The answer is then easy…it’s Jesus.  For when there’s more of Him and less of us that light can shine brightly from within.
