“And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”
What I want to look into is the second part of verse two. Genesis 1:2 says, 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.
What I see here, based on what I wrote for my last IBS, is two things. The first is how dark it must have been without the light. Spiritually, when one becomes saved, the light of the Lord is shown upon them. They no longer live in darkness because according to John 1:5, And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
If Jesus is the light of the world why do so many Christians still DESIRE to live in darkness? It's because their pride doesn't want their shame to be brought into light. What they don't understand is how in order to clean something, you first have to be able to see what the problem is. Humility is essential to the Christian walk so that we don't settle for a darker life that's able to hide more.
The second thing is about the Spirit of God. First of all the Spirit of God was there from the start. Second it was there even when it was dark. No one being is able make the Holy Spirit stay away from them. Consequently, non-believers aren't able to keep it away with the filthy of the flesh. For an application I will just remind those around me to stay in the light of Christ if ever I see them start to stumble.
