This truth points us all the way back to Genesis – to creation – to the moment when God spoke Light into darkness. But then Scripture uses that magnificent act of power in the past to point us to a marvelous reality in the present – from creation to re-creation. For at one time our hearts were full of darkness – empty and without purpose – until the glory of God through the Lord Jesus Christ shone into our lives. His Light brought us hope and life and fullness and purpose. Turn away from the darkness and look into the face of Jesus. See the Light in His eyes. Knowing Him lights the way.
