The Light Was Good

"God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness."
- Genesis 1:4 -

"Let there be light."

Light is good. 

We who enjoy it should be more grateful.

We should see more of God in it and by it.

Light is sweet.

But the gospel light is infinitely more precious.

Gospel light reveals eternal things, and ministers to our immortal natures.

When the Holy Spirit gives us spiritual light, He opens our eyes to behold the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

We behold sin in its true colors, and ourselves in our real position.

We see the Most Holy God as He reveals Himself, the plan of mercy as He propounds it, and the world to come as the Word describes it.

Spiritual light has many beams and prismatic colors.

It brings knowledge, joy, holiness, or life, all are divinely good.

May the Lord God give us more of light, and more of Himself, the true light.

Light and darkness have no communion.

God has divided them.

The Sons of light must not have fellowship with deeds, doctrines, or deceits of darkness.

The Children of the day must be sober, honest, and bold in their Lord's work, leaving the works of darkness to those who shall dwell in it forever.

The Churches should by discipline divide the light from the darkness.

In judgment, in action, in hearing, in teaching, in association, we must discern between the precious and the vile.

We should maintain the great distinction which the Lord made upon the world's first day.

May the Lord God be our light throughout our whole life.
