Today's Verse: John 1:4-5

Tuesday, December 11, 2007

In him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not overcome it.
— John 1:4-5

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Life! Not just living, but true, genuine life. Life that gives us light that darkness cannot steal away. That's why God sent Jesus! Thankfully that light still shines and all of Satan's horses and all of Satan's men cannot put their deepest darkest darkness together again! Hallelujah!

My Prayer...

For every good and perfect gift, for the light I have even in my moments of deepest darkness, for the hope I have of living with you in glorious and unapproachable light, I thank you and praise you with eternal joy, now and forevermore. In Jesus' name. Amen.
