An inspirational Bible verse of faith

All things were made through him. Without him was not anything made that has been made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men.

John 1:3-4

This Bible verse is found in John’s Gospel. It comes after:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

These scripture verses speak of God’s creative power and His preeminence and preexistence before our known Universe.

Whatever you may believe about the formation of the Universe and how it was made, the Bible says that God was before all things, even before the earth was made. I believe there is something significant about the word light in this context too.

In Genesis 1 it says:

God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.  God saw the light, and saw that it was good. God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light “day”, and the darkness he called “night”. There was evening and there was morning, the first day. (Genesis 1:3-5)

The fascinating thing about this well-know Bible scripture about creation is that God created light before He created the sun, moon and stars. Is this initial light at creations something different from the usual light of our known physical Universe?! Could this light me the glory of God? It is something I have thought about. I really do not have the answer but I am sure that the answer is something glorious and wonderful – perhaps it is the fabric of Heaven? I will leave that to the experts to ‘enlighten’ us (no pun intended!).

Where is says, In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. (John 1:3), I wonder if this is the same light as described in Genesis – the light that initiated the creation of the Universe and Earth.
