Finding Light for Dark Places

The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. (John 1:9) “Wherever and whenever God speaks the result is light”. So says Tim Chester in his helpful book of readings on John 1 (One True Light). We see it right back at creation. The first thing we hear God say in the Bible (Genesis 1:3) is ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light! And we find out in John 1:1-3 the Jesus was The Word through which God created. From that time forward, creation has continued to shed light on its creator.

But the true light – God’s most complete revelation of himself – is Jesus. “The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word” (Hebrews 1:3). There is no reason to be in the dark about God. If creation hasn’t convinced you, you can read about Jesus in the Bible – start with one of the gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke or John.

At Staines Cong we studied Job this autumn – and discovered how real believers can go through really dark times. But I think I can guarantee that those who found the most light in their darkness were those who engaged with the light-giving, incarnate Word of God (Jesus) through the written Word of God (the Bible). Why not join us and find some light for yourself? The next couple of weeks are a great time to come to church for the first time, or to come back to church if you haven’t been for a while. We’d love to see you and help shed some light on your path - Pastor Nick.
