Bible Verses: Darkness into Light

light (lahyt) noun something that makes things visible or affords illumination

I have always been a firm believer in evangelizing through example. I think that as we try to be more like Jesus in our everyday lives, people take notice. We're called to be a light for those in darkness and I truly believe that is one of the best tools we have. In fact, that's how I first became interested in the Christian faith. I saw the example that my tenth grade English teacher put forth; I saw the light in her. Her example transformed my life and ultimately showed me how to give my life to Christ (more on that here.) Once we commit our lives to our Lord, we are taken out of darkness, allowing us to be a light for others.

Below are some Bible verses that I find to be a great example of how our lives are transformed into light once we've been saved by Jesus.

Job 33:28 "God rescued me from the grave, and now my life is filled with light."

Psalm 119:105 "Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path."

Isaiah 60:1 "Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you."

Matthew 4:16 "The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light. And for those who lived in the land where death casts its shadow, a light has shined."

Matthew 5:16 "In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."

John 8:12 "Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, 'I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won't have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.'"

2 Corinthians 4:6 "For God, who said, 'Let light shine out of darkness,' made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God's glory displayed in the face of Christ."

Ephesians 5:8 "For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light."

1 Peter 2:9 "But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God's very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light."

Revelation 21:23 "And the city has no need of sun or moon, for the glory of God illuminates the city, and the Lamb is its light."
