Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 01/01/12

This week’s scripture is from Genesis:

“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”

“And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good.”    (Genesis 1:1-3, 31)

God is good, and all He does is good. He was in the beginning, and by His Word everything that is or ever will be came into existence. He spoke into that which was empty and dark, and there was light dispelling the darkness, just as Jesus, the Living Word, then came into this sin-darkened world and brought the light of salvation. Everywhere the light of God’s word goes, the darkness is dispelled and God’s goodness breaks into the light. Praise God for sending the light into our lives.

May the light of God’s word continue to shine in your life as you share it with others.
