Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of October 31, 2021

For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:6 (NIV)

Have you ever tried to find your way in the dark without a light? In Genesis chapter one God said, “Let there be light” and He created light out of the darkness. Our verse for this week declares that God is also able to make His light shine into the darkness of our hearts. If light travels at the speed of 186,000 miles a second, then we know that darkness has to flee that fast from every ray of light; especially in the light of God’s presence. His glory is the perfection, beauty and power of His extravagant love that we find in our personal relationship with Jesus when. Jesus proclaimed in John 8:12 “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (NIV) Let the light of the love of Jesus dispel any encroaching darkness; and let it shine through you as you follow Him. Yes, amen!
