The entrance of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple. (Psalm 119:130, NKJV)
What is the first thing you do when you walk into a dark room? You turn on the lights. God’s word is described as giving light from the first moment it is encountered. Sin has caused much darkness in the world and in our lives. The light of God’s word shows the way out of sin’s darkness and into the light of life that is in Jesus (Jno. 1:4). The light He gives “shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it” (Jno. 1:5, ESV). By following the word of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, you will have the light of life (Jno. 8:12).
