  • Genesis 1:1–5 NIV
    1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. 3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.
    Genesis 1:14–19 NIV
    14 And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth.” And it was so. 16 God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. 17 God set them in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth, 18 to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fourth day.
    Revelation 4:11 NIV
    11 “You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.”

    Light = Life

    Light = Knowledge

    Fait Lux (Latin) Let there be light

    Darkness = Ignorance

    Darkness = Sin

    John 1:5 AMP
    5 And the Light shines on in the darkness, for the darkness has never overpowered it [put it out or absorbed it or appropriated it, and is unreceptive to it].
    1 John 1:5–7 NIV
    5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 6 If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

    Light = Vision

    Light = Life

    Matthew 5:14–16 NIV
    14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
    Ephesians 3:20 NIV
    20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,
    Psalm 147:4–5 NIV
    4 He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name. 5 Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit.

    Every light needs a source

    John 8:12 NIV
    12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
    John 12:46 NIV
    46 I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.

    God’s word recharges our light

    Psalm 119:105 NIV
    105 Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.
    Psalm 119:11 NIV
    11 I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.
    Romans 13:12 NIV
    12 The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.
    John 15:5 NIV
    5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.

    Our light shines when we share

    James 5:20 NIV
    20 remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of their way will save them from death and cover over a multitude of sins.
    2 Peter 3:8–9 NIV
    8 But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. 9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
    Isaiah 60:1 NIV
    1 “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.

    Our light shines when we speak life

    Proverbs 18:21 NIV
    21 The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
    Psalm 141:3 NIV
    3 Set a guard over my mouth, Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips.
    Hebrews 10:24–25 NIV
    24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

    Our light shines by our good deeds

    James 1:22 NIV
    22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
    Titus 2:7 NIV
    7 In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness
    James 2:14–18 NIV
    14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? 15 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. 18 But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.” Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds.

    Darkness = Fear

    Light banishes fear

    Psalm 27:1 NIV
    1 The Lord is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid?
