In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.
God's eternal relationship as Father, Son, and Spirit brought us the incarnation of God in human flesh through Jesus, God's ultimate message, "the Word"!  The power of this light-giving and life-giving Word cannot be extinguished, though hell has tried.  Darkness cannot overpower God's true Light  that shines to bring hope and joy to all of our lives and deepen the meaning of our relationships. As we open our hearts to Jesus, He directs us to share His light with others in fellowship with Him. Jesus said it this way:
"In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven (Matthew 5:16).
Shining our light is not just part of our relationship with others, but also reflects our relationship with God!
Father, thank you for Jesus, our Light of life* that cannot be stopped from shining your love and grace into our lives. I commit to being one of Your lights that shines in our dark world^ that helps others find their way to Jesus, in whose name I pray. Amen.
