Getting To Know God
His name is...
The Creator - The Light - The Glory - Aseity
Let There Be Light
Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light.
When God said, “Let there be light,” He didn’t create light in the same manner that He created all other things. The phrase “let there be” refers to God’s revelation, meaning that He simply unveiled His natural essence as light in a physical capacity for our benefit. This shows God’s glory, power, goodness, and beauty. He didn’t need another source to shine. The world was dark until God made His natural essence known to it. Without the eternally self-existing and self-sustaining light of God, ultimately made manifest in Jesus Christ, our lives and the world around us remain dark.
