Light Undiminished

“The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.” John 1:4-5 NLT

“And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart. And I will put my Spirit in you so that you will follow my decrees and be careful to obey my regulations.” Ezekiel 36:26-27 NLT

“All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.” Ephesians 1:3-5 NLT

“This is the message we heard from Jesus and now declare to you: God is light, and there is no darkness in him at all. So we are lying if we say we have fellowship with God but go on living in spiritual darkness; we are not practicing the truth. But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.” 1 John 1:5-7 NLT

Light Undiminished meditation

There was a time I did not know God personally
I knew his rules and commands but knew they were not for me
I could not love Him or others as he commanded
The deceptiveness of sin had my heart by stone surrounded

But Jesus came into my life to show his love for me
Offered me His love to live in and to give away for free
Offered me a new heart that was living and loving
Offered me a new spirit with His Holy Spirit united

Jesus Your Glory light reigns undiminished
No darkness has the power to ever overcome it
United with You, You from ALL sin cleanse us
You purify all darkness from within us
Making us pure and holy by Your Own Presence

Now I live with Jesus, united as one
His powerful light cleansing me even when I stumble
When I take the wrong direction He turns me around
Shows me the path where His life can be found

Jesus Your Glory light reigns undiminished
No darkness has the power to ever overcome it
United with You, You from ALL sin cleanse us
You purify all darkness from within us
Making us pure and holy by Your Own Presence

I need never fear my sin can taint or damage Jesus
For in His death and resurrection is the power to redeem us
To exchange our death for His eternal life
He has overcome all to give us his Glory light

Jesus Your Glory light reigns undiminished
No darkness has the power to ever overcome it
United with You, You from ALL sin cleanse us
You purify all darkness from within us
Making us pure and holy by Your Own Presence

All of sins damage can be taken to the cross
And left there to die, now powerless
Be left in exchange for Jesus resurrection life
We have this privilege every day of our life

Jesus Your Glory light reigns undiminished
No darkness has the power to ever overcome it
United with You, You from ALL sin cleanse us
You purify all darkness from within us
Making us pure and holy by Your Own Presence

Now I can, without any hesitation
Stay in the Presence of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit
Now nothing can separate me from God’s love
For Jesus’ holiness and righteousness, He has made mine

Jesus Your Glory light reigns undiminished
No darkness has the power to ever overcome it
United with You, You from ALL sin cleanse us
Re-making us in Your Holy Image
Filling us with Your Glory light and essence
Making us pure by Your Own Presence

Light transforms

“We can all draw close to him with the veil removed from our faces. And with no veil we all become like mirrors who brightly reflect the glory of the Lord Jesus. We are being transfigured into his very image as we move from one brighter level of glory to another. And this glorious transfiguration comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” (2 Corinthians 3:18 TPT)

“Once your life was full of sin’s darkness, but now you have the very light of our Lord shining through you because of your union with him. Your mission is to live as children flooded with his revelation-light! And the supernatural fruits of his light will be seen in you—goodness, righteousness, and truth.” (Ephesians 5:8-9 TPT)

Light Governs

“God set these lights in the sky to light the earth, to govern the day and night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good.” (Genesis 1:17-18 NLT)

Just as God lights and rules this universe and keeps His light pure, so His lights, the sun, moon and stars light and govern day and night for us, separating night from day. And something which so clearly reflects the nature of God must be good.

As long as I [Jesus] am with you my life is the light that pierces the world’s darkness.” (John 9:5 TPT)

Light Separated from Darkness

Then God separated the light from the darkness. Genesis 1:4b NLT

Lord, even in the light we see every day, that part of Your Glory we live in, You wanted purity so Your light would not be diminished or contaminated by darkness.

“God is pure light. You will never find even a trace of darkness in him.” (1 John 1:5b TPT)

“O Lord, you are my lamp. The Lord lights up my darkness.” (2 Samuel 22:29 NLT)

And when Your light entered this world in person, in Jesus, we saw that “this

Living Expression is the Light that bursts through gloom — the Light that darkness could not diminish!” (John 1:5 TPT)

Light is Good

And God saw that the light was good.” Genesis 1:4a NLT

When Moses said to God, “show me your glory.” God replied, “I will make all my goodness pass before you.” (Exod. 33:18-19)

So goodness is the core nature and the glory of God. God himself is the source and definition of all goodness in this world.

So when God saw the light was good he saw His own glory in it; God’s glory, God’s goodness in this created world.

Let there be light

When God began creation of this world it was formless, dark and empty. Though His Spirit hovered above it yet His Personal Presence was not in it. We know this because

“God is pure light. You will never find even a trace of darkness in him.” (1 John 1:5b TPT)

But God did not want to stand aloof from His creation. He wanted to be part of it. He wanted to enjoy it, make it good like Him for “His life is light for all humanity.” (John 1:4b TPT). So He spoke His own Presence into His creation, “Let there be light,” and there was light.

That means every experience I have of light is an experience of the life giving Presence of God.
