Churches use light as a symbolic picture of being able to see what was in darkness, the burning away of the dross of sin to purify a life and the hope of heaven’s blessing in our life. This week we celebrate the first week of Advent. We will dig deeper into the meaning of God giving us His light.
Read: Genesis 1:1-19
Biblical creation is very different from what secular science suggests. How were the heavens and the earth created? Process how God could just speak and “there was light.” (Vs. 3). What does that say about God? What did God do with this light? Why? What was the light good for (vs. 5-7, 11-18)? What happens when there is no light? As we head into the ‘dark days of winter’, thank God today for giving us the wonderful gift of light.
