Light and Darkness




Human life starts with a day breaking. We rise up in the morning to work and lie down to rest in the night.

Then what is the implication of ‘day(light)’ and ‘night(darkness)’ in the Bible?

 

We read in, Genesis 1:3-5;

“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. God called the light ‘day’ and the darkness he called ‘night.’ And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.”

God said, “Let there be light” and at once there was light. The power of the word of God!

And in the new creation in Christ Jesus, the first thing that is done in the soul is light: the Holy Spirit works upon the will and affections by enlightening the understanding. Those who by sin were darkness, by grace become light in the Lord. Darkness would have been always upon fallen man, if the Son of God had not come and given us understanding as in 1John 5:20;

 “We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know Him Who is true. And we are in Him who is true--even in His Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.”

God divided the light from the darkness; for what fellowship has light with darkness? In heaven there is perfect light and no darkness at all, in hell, only darkness, and no gleam of light.

The day and the night are the Lord's.  Let us use both to His honor, by working for Him every day, and resting in Him every night, meditating in His law both day and night.

We read in, Ephesians 5:8;

“For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light.”

Let us live as children of Light, Lord Jesus! Amen.
