Scripture Reading: John 1:1–14
“In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not,” John 1:4–5.
Father, we thank you for the joy that your Word has brought into the world.
“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth,” John 1:14. Beloved, have you received the Light of God into your life? Have you received Jesus, “That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world?,” John 1:9. He has come to turn us from darkness into His marvelous light.
John 1:9–11 says, “That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not.” Why did they not receive Him? Because they were in darkness.“ “But as many as received him, to them gave He power to become sons of God, even to them that believe on his name,” John 1:12. Do you believe in the name of Jesus today? You need the power in that name, for with that power you will be born not only of flesh, or of the will of man, but with that power you will become born of God, John 1:13.
“In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and darkness comprehended it not,” John 1:4–5. Do you have that Light? When you have Christ in you, the Light of the glory of God shines in you. That Light will shine in your environment, but the darkness will not like it because you are of the Light. Darkness cannot comprehend light, because as soon as light comes in, darkness disappears. I pray today in the name of Jesus that that Light shines in your darkness, and that you comprehend the Light. May that be your reality today, in the name of Jesus.
I pray that you will receive the Son of God. I pray that by the grace of God, you will behold His glory as the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. The Lord Jesus is the Word, according to John 1:1: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” If you replace “the Word” with “Jesus,” you will understand this verse better. You can interpret it to mean: “In the beginning was Jesus, and Jesus was with God, and Jesus was God.” Jesus is the Word and Jesus is the Light. He is the Light of the world.
I pray that that Light comes to you, and like verse 14 that you behold His glory, which is full of grace and truth.
If the Light of God is in you will also be full of grace and truth. When people are full of lies, they are walking in darkness.
They do not know their left from their right because they believe things that are not true. But when you are full of grace and truth, you walk in revelation; you see every circumstance as it truly is. As you and I walk in that Light, may we experience the grace of God. Grace is giving to you what you do not deserve. When the Light of God comes into your life it causes you to be seen in the right light. Then because you are seen in the right light, you will be favoured. May you receive favour in Jesus’ name. May God fill you with His glorious light, so wherever you are seen, His Light will radiate to all and you will be full of grace and truth.
I pray that the Light of God will be shed upon you; that you will receive the grace and truth of our Lord Jesus Christ. I pray that your life will be full of grace, truth and favour; that there be no darkness in your life, for God is light and in Him there is no darkness at all.
Receive Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour today. Receive that Light and be full of grace, truth and unmerited favour in Jesus’ name. Amen.
