Light of the Word

Genesis 1:3-5 
And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. And God 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.

We know that God made light separate from the dark (as long as you believe in creation), but we need to remember is that we need to show the light of God through ourselves.

John 9:5"As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world."

By just glancing at this verse you might say, "Jesus isn't living on the earth anymore, so then he is no longer the light of the world." But there's a important word that can be easily missed when you first read this verse, and that's "in". As long as Jesus is in the world, he is the light of the world. A more understandable way to say it is; As long as Jesus lives in us, his light will shine through us.

Matthew 5:14-16 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven."

Let your light shine bright! I pray that I may shine for my beloved Father in heaven, and that my light would not dim or be put out. -Deanna, Just a girl trying to shine her light.
