God said, “Let there be light.” And so light appeared. God saw how good the light was. God separated the light from the darkness. God named the light Day and the darkness Night.
Light is an important theme in the Bible. You could say the story of the Bible is one of moving from darkness to light. Look at the way the Bible begins in Genesis: “the earth was without shape or form, it was dark over the deep sea”. . . then God said, “Let there be light” and there was light. The first thing God spoke into existence was light.
Holy God, fill me with your light. Shine your light into me. I ask this in the name of Jesus, the Eternal Light, who shows the way. Amen.
If the significance of light as a metaphor in the Bible shows how God makes darkness a choice, can you relate to ways God gave you choice over some kind of darkness?
