God Is Light

While the entire Bible reveals God clearly through his names, actions, descriptions, and images, the Bible rarely makes such direct assertions about the nature of God as we find in 1 John 1:5, "God is light." The God who dwells in unapproachable light, who spoke light into existence and separated it from the darkness, who is himself our light and our salvation, and who calls us out of darkness into his marvelous light, invites us to see him through these words, "God is light." Come with open eyes this Lord's Day as we meet to see his glory.
