About-Him.Com Devotional 03-16-2002
1st in a series on Jesus the Light of the World
 2 Corinthians 4:6  For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to [give] the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, Most of us learned in Sunday School that God is characterized as a being of light. This light is described in I Timothy 6:16 as being unapproachable by man. I find it interesting that when God spoke the words of creation, His first act was to bring forth light. This light was prior to that of the sun and moon and sustained life.  When we get to the heavenly city, once again there will be no need of the sun, because the glory of God and the Lamb will light that city eternally (Revelation 21:23).
hath shined in our hearts,  Jesus came as the Light of the world (John 8:12) , a light to the gentiles (Luke 2:32) and to people who were sitting in darkness (Luke 1:79). He is the True Light which lights every man who comes into the world (John 1:9). We didn't seek Him, He sought us.
to [give] the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.  We remember that Moses had to wear a veil to approach the intense light of God's glory and presence, otherwise he would have died (Exodus 33:20).  Fortunately for us, God veiled Himself in the form of Jesus Christ that we might be able to learn of, commune with and become extensions of His person  (John 1:4, 9, 14; 12:41, 46; 14:9-10; Colossians 1;15; Hebrews 1:3).
So what do we do with this light?  (Continued next week).
Matthew 5:14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
