I read this article of "The Power of Light" again today. It describes some attributes of light (and God)…
It is amazing how the attributes of light as described by scientists brings forth a clear picture of God.
I placed the similarities in bold…
THERE HAS BEEN LIGHT from the beginning. There will be light, feebly, at the end. In all its forms–visible and invisible–it saturates the universe. Light is more than a little bit inscrutable. Modern physics has sliced the stuff of nature into ever smaller and more exotic constituents, but light won’t reduce. Light is light, pure, but not simple…
Light reveals the world to us. Body and soul crave it. Light sets our biological clocks. It triggers in our brains the sensations of colour. Light feeds us, supplying the energy for plants to grow. It inspires us with special effects like rainbows and sunsets. Light gives us life-changing tools, from incandescent bulbs to lasers and fiber optics. Scientists don’t fully understand what light is or what it can do. They just know that it will illuminate our future.

Light permeates our reality
at every scale of existence.
It’s an amazing tool,
a carrier of beauty,
a giver of life.
Permeates is to flow out like a liquid, gas, or vapour that spreads throughout everything… When we invite God into our lives, He will permeate it and flood it with Light!!!
The Bible describes God as Light and as the Life-Giver… Here are some verses describing this Light of Life:
He has redeemed my soul from going down into the pit, and my life shall look upon the light.’ "Behold, God does all these things, twice, three times, with a man, to bring back his soul from the pit, that he may be lighted with the light of life.
(Job 33:28-30 ESV).
The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? (Psalms 27:1).
For with you is the fountain of life; in your light do we see light. (Psalms 36:9).
For you have delivered my soul from death, yes, my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of life. (Psalms 56:13).
In the light of a king’s face there is life, and his favour is like the clouds that bring the spring rain. (Proverbs 16:15) (This is the ultimate King, God).
In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
(John 1:4-5 ESV).
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." (John 8:12).
Other verses that also describe some attributes of God are:
1 Samuel 2:6
1 Timothy 6:13
Jesus has this desire for us, that we should become ‘sons of light’!
So Jesus said to them, "The light is among you for a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness overtake you. The one who walks in the darkness does not know where he is going. While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of light." When Jesus had said these things, he departed and hid himself from them.
(John 12:35-36 ESV).
I want to urge you to spend time with Jesus as much as possible, before the darkness comes… become light like your Father, God, King, Lover and Friend!
For our light has a purpose:
"You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
(Matthew 5:14-16 ESV).
