DECEMBER 18 – JOHN 1:4-5

12/18          John 1:4-5

4 The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.


The Word created, bringing light, agreed upon within the Trinity.

This light was important.  Before the light there was only darkness.  

Darkness cannot dispel light.  Light cannot be stopped.  

Even a little light will shine brightly in the dark.  

We need light.  We need it so that we can grow and flourish.  

Light dispels our sadness.  It promotes our health.  Light brings His life.  

Darkness lost the moment light was created.  Jesus is the light.  He is our life.
