Genesis 1:3 records the first words (that we know) God spoke.
And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.
Four amazing words.
God loves light. He created it as the first thing. The light scattered and shattered the darkness. It revealed what was and what would be. In a very real way, light and truth are married. The God of light wants His children to live in the light, to speak and inhabit truth. To run away from that which holds us in darkness, particularly devastating secrets.
