Verse: “God is light and in Him is no darkness at all”
(1 John 1:5b).
God is Light
Verse: “And God said, Let there be light; and there was light” (Genesis 1:3).
Focus: God is light and He created light for us to see, move, and live. Light is very important, because without it, plants, animals, and men cannot survive.
Practical Application: Try walking around a room with the lights off. Then turn the lights on. See the difference? Talk about the plants. What happens if there is no light?
Verse: “God is light and in Him is no darkness at all” (1 John 1:5b).
Focus: God’s nature is light; there is no darkness in Him. Everything about Him is bright and clear, and nothing He does is shady or deceptive.
Practical Application: Consider asking the children how they feel inside when they cheat in school or lie to their parents. Do they want others to know that they cheated or lied? This is darkness. Contrast this with how they feel inside when they tell the truth or when they help someone in need. This is light.
Verse: “Walk as children of light… and do not participate in the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather even reprove them” (Ephesians 5:8b, 11).
Focus: God’s nature is light; there is no darkness in Him. His light shines in our heart, exposing the wrongdoings and sins that are hidden in our heart.
Practical Application: When we rebel or show anger toward our parents, we feel like we are in darkness and feel bad about our actions. God’s light shines on what we have done wrong. His shining makes us feel bad inside. We should quickly confess our wrongdoing to God and apologize to the people we have wronged. As long as we are willing to tell Him about our wrongdoings and sins, God as light will shine in us and take away the darkness.
