Man is like a shadow – here for a moment, then gone for ever. He cannot exist without light and substance, and of himself he has partial light. Unlike a shadow he has intelligence and life. In his brief moment he glimpses the shadow and knows there is light.
Without light there is no life and there are no shadows; there is nothing but darkness and death.
Light is energy and eternal and without light nothing can exist. Light overcomes darkness and brings life.
John 1:1-5 ‘In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God.
All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.’
