Word Wednesday

God Gold of the day

Word Wednesday:
[Phos] ——> Light

[Phos] is a term meaning “illumination, or light which is perceived either with the senses or spiritually.”

We can see there are many occasions where light is used in the Bible. Jesus is the light that completely takes over the darkness and can’t be overtaken. If you are feeling down, look for the light [phos]. It is near for it cannot be hidden. “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it” says John 1:5.
BUT, it’s doesn’t stop there! We are not just suppose to look at the light for ourselves. Matthew 5:15 says “neither do people light a lamp and put it under a basket. Instead, they set it on a lamp stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.”

I encourage you to seek the light today. If you have found the light, let someone else see!

LITERAL LIGHT; illumination provided by sunlight, burning, incandescence or other source; or sources of light, such as lamps.
Mt.17.2. Lk.8.16; 22.56. Jn.11.9. Act.9.3; 12.7; 16.29; 22.6,9,11; 26.13.

FIGURATIVELY, GOD OR JESUS THE ANOINTED ONE, OR THEIR WORDS AS THE SOURCE OF LIGHT which can enlighten the minds of humans concerning God’s will. Eighteen times, God’s light is contrasted to spiritual “darkness.”
Mt.4.16,16; 6.23; Lk.2.32; 16.8. Jn.1.4,5,7,8,8,9; 3.19, 19,20,20,21; 5.35; 8.12,12; 9.5; 11.10; 12.35,35,36,36,36,46. Act.26.18,23. Rom.13.12. 2Co.4.6; 6.14; 11.14. Eph.5.8b,13,14. Col.1.12. 1Th.5.5. 1Ti.6.16. Jas.1.17. 1Pe.2.9. 1Jn.1.5,7,7; 2.8,9,10. Rev.18.23; 21.24; 22.5.

24 year old dude with not a clue what he's doing but God's grace continues to amaze me! Current Seminary student, avid adventure seeker, and getting married to the most humble, weird, and beautiful girl on the planet! Wasted a lot of years living what I thought was the "good life", then Christ showed me what living really is. I pray that my story can somehow help in whatever way possible, to give encouragement and hope that Christ can do the same with you.
