An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

A Place to Start

(Gen 1:3 KJV)  And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

As I was thinking about the attributes of God, I thought of the statement "God is light”.  That brought to mind the beginning of Genesis and the creation, and the opening words of God.  He who is light started by inserting light into the universe.  He was creating.

We think of light as being the bright thing that keeps us from stubbing our toes as we walk through the house at night.  We think of flashlights and headlights.  But the light here is more in the sense of illuminating truth, illuminating justice, and illuminating all those other important issues.  It talks about a character of God in which He rejects darkness and evil.

So?  Rejoice that we worship a god of light.
