Being a photographer teaches me that photography is nothing without light. That high end gadget meant to capture moments, freeze motion and long expose subjects is just a piece of junk without light. To a photographer, lighting is everything, not the camera.
Do you know that NOTHING is opaque? Do you know that EVERYTHING is transparent. Take a case scenario, you cannot see your fractured bone but an X-ray can. To you, your flesh is opaque but to the X-ray, it is as transparent as the light of day because the X-ray produces MUCH LIGHT that penetrates subjects.
Can we say without light our eyes are just but two meat balls in their sockets? Before God created earth we are told that darkness hovered on the surface of the earth and God said, ‘Let there be light.’ The Bible continues to tell us that God made the bigger light (the sun) and the lesser light, the moon. This means that we need light at ALL times.
Why do we say that God sees everything, knows everything and that nothing in creation is hidden from Him?
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
Where is your light? Under the table? Under your bed? Clogged in dust?
“Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.” Psalms 119:105
Who is your light? Your pastor? Your mentor? Your parent? Your successes?
“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 cleanses us from all sin.” 1 John 1:7
And who are you? A creature like no other living a day at a time wasting away to depletion?
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matthew 5:14
Why do I need the light? Can’t I be my own light? But the Bible says I am the light of the world?
He is the light of the world (John 8:12) and apart from Him you are nothing (John 15).
