The people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned. Matthew 4:16
There are so many passages about LIGHT in the Bible! If you look for them, they will literally LIGHT up your life! In this new year, let us focus on the LIGHT coming out of the darkness of this past year. LIGHT is mentioned hundreds of times in the Bible in both the Old and New Testaments. The verse from the Gospel of Matthew is just one of many.
Jesus is the LIGHT of the world, and as his people, we are to reflect that LIGHT all the days of our lives. Below are just a few LIGHT passages to read and reflect on. This new year, let us reflect the LIGHT of Jesus and let him shine through us every day!
John 9:5: While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
Micah 7:8: Do not gloat over me, my enemy! Though I have fallen, I will rise. Though I sit in darkness, the Lord will be my LIGHT.
Psalm 18:28: You, Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into LIGHT.
John 8:12: 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.”
1 Peter 2:9: But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of the darkness into his wonderful LIGHT.
