In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. Genesis 1:1-3
The first command, the first words of The WORD as recorded in the very first book of the Bible are, “Let there be light.”
This weekend, we (that is, most of North America) will set our clocks one hour ahead in an attempt to save a little daylight.
We like light. The more light the better. Because we live in a world that is spiritually dark, we crave the light.
But we cannot create the light. Only God can do that.
And so, the first book of the New Testament announces the birth of Jesus. The prophecy was now fulfilled. The One, the only One, who could save the day – He came to save our souls.
The people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.” Matthew 4:16, Isaiah 9:1-2
