Genesis 1:3-5, 14-19

We describe certain times of our lives as “dark times”. These are periods of time of little joy, feelings of oppression, and distance from God, His purposes, and others. On the first day of creation, God spoke light into existence. On the fourth day, God spoke the sun, moon, stars and every other celestial body into existence. In these two acts we see God’s providential care for us, and His call to believe in Him by faith. God spoke light into existence, He brought it into the world, and we need to choose His light if we are going to know Him and know the joy and love of God in this world. How do we live in God’s light?
