John 1:4 (NKJV) In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.
Life and light are so common that we take these things for granted. We see life all around us. It is everywhere. But can you explain what is life? How did life begin? Man has been asking that question for centuries. And man has come up with many wild theories. Man thinks he has come up with the correct answer, but he has not. God created the heavens and the earth, and all that lives. God created man in His own image. The Bible is clear on how life began. But why does man ignore God? It is because a heart of a man is naturally wicked. It is because the heart of a man is far away from God. But no matter how much man rejects the Bible, the truth of God’s Word always prevails. “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being” (Genesis 2:7 NKJV). Life. The other common thing that is mentioned in John 1:4 is light. But can you explain what is light? What is light? With all that man knows about light, still he knows very little about it. “In Him was life.” All life is in the Lord Jesus Christ, God the Son, the Second Person of the Trinity, the Triune Godhead, Elohim. “For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him” (Colossians 1:16 NKJV). “In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.” We live in a world that is spiritually dark. The vast darkness of space is nothing compared to the spiritual darkness that envelops this world. Man is in rebellion against God. Man does not seek God. And the sins of man keep his eyes and his heart blind to God. But in the Lord Jesus Christ is life, and the life is the light of men. The Lord Jesus Christ is the only One who can give life. Therefore, those who do not believe in Him has no spiritual life. They are spiritually dead. They are dead in their sins. This world is in spiritual darkness. And the Lord Jesus Christ is the only Light there is in the world. Jesus is the Light. For Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” (John 8:12 NKJV).
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
