Light, natural and spiritual



Light, natural and spiritual

‘And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.’ Genesis 1:3–5

Suggested Further Reading: Ephesians 5:8–14

‘God saw the light, that it was good.’ Light is good in all respects. 

The natural light is good. 
Solomon says, ‘Truly the light is sweet, and a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to behold the sun.’ But you did not need Solomon to inform you upon that point. 

Any blind man who will tell you the tale of his sorrows will be quite philosopher enough to convince you that light is good.

 Gospel light is good.
 ‘Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see.’ You only need to travel into heathen lands, and witness the superstition and cruelty of the dark places of the earth, to understand that gospel light is good. 

As for spiritual light, those that have received it long for more of it, that they may see yet more and more the glory of heaven’s essential light! O God, thou art of good the unmeasured Sea; thou art of light both soul, and source, and centre. 

Whether, then, we take natural light, gospel light, spiritual light, or essential light, we may say of it, as God did, that it was good.

 But we are speaking now of light spiritual. Why is that good? Well, it must be so, from its source. 

The light emanates from God, in whom is no darkness at all, and, as it comes absolutely and directly from him, it must be good. 

As every good gift, and every perfect gift is from above, so everything which comes from above is good and perfect. 

The Lord distributes no alloyed metal: he never gives his people that which is mixed and debased. Thy words, O God, are pure; as silver tried in the furnace of earth purified seven times. 

The light of the new nature is good when we consider its origin.

For meditation: 

Light is good, because God is light (1 John 1:5) and the Father of lights (James 1:17). Not surprisingly the evildoer hates the light (John 3:19–20). Have you become a child of light by following the light of the world (John 8:12) and trusting in him (John 12:35–36)?

 “The true minister of Christ knows that the true value of a sermon must lie, 
not in its fashion and manner, but in the truth which it contains.
