“In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men” – Genesis 1:1-4

LIGHT FOR NOW: A life outside the word of God is a life devoid of God.

Until you receive light, your life remains in darkness. Today’s text describes Jesus as the source of life. In Jesus there is life. Also, in Jesus is the light of men. Wisdom, understanding and discernment are pre-requisite elements which make life easy. Except you receive Jesus, your life will remain useless. The arrival of light is the beginning of life. Therefore, Jesus is the ultimate source of life. The account of John 1:4 specifically says, “In him was life; and the life was the light of men”. The pronoun used for the word of God is not “it” but “him” – signifying an intelligent creature with a personality. Light emanates from the word of God and that word of God is Jesus. We can simply put the verse this way: In Him (Jesus Christ) is life; and the life is the light of men. When Jesus walks into your life, everything in you come alive. You cannot be in Christ and you experience death. How can the light or the word of God be of benefit to you? What are the blessings attached to your association with this light?

First, putting Gods’ word to work enhances your worth. Your worth in life is a function of the word of God you practice. A life outside the word of God is worthless. A life outside Jesus (the light) is not worth living. If you want to be blessed, you have to engage in the works of the word of God. It is vital that you accept that the essence of your existence is to serve the Lord. Jesus Christ deserves your worship. One reason is that He is your creator. “All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made”. Surely, He is the light that emits life to all those who identifies with Him. Christ is the light that shines in the dead darkness. When He shows up in your dark world, your world will be illuminated with His glorious presence. His light is the source of eternal life. If you have Him, you will have that indestructible life. Glory!

INSTRUCTION: Never detach yourself from the light that guarantees eternal life.

CONFESSION: Lord Jesus, I rely on you. I have life because I believe in you, in Jesus Name, Amen.

QUOTE: Life has no value without the light of God’s word.
