God Decreed Light to Shine in Darkness
2 Corinthians 4:6 (KJB) For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
This verse of scripture is a beautiful picture of God’s grace and truth. This portrait of eternal light is available for whosoever places faith is placed in the finished work of Jesus Christ. Not only is this promise true, but the eternal spiritual light of God reflects His holiness as it illuminates this naturally dark earth and eternally shines inside regenerated souls.
This scripture verse points back to the days of creation in Genesis 1:3 when God spoke everything into being, and God’s light divinely pierced the darkness of this world. God’s light continues to shine inside spiritually softened hearts and to contrast the present sin and evil now at work in this world.
God spoke, and His light shined in this world at the moment of creation. Now His glory shines in softened spiritual hearts brimming with the knowledge of Jesus Christ like a banner for reaching hearts in this dark world.
