2 Corinthians 4. Forum Discussion

2 Corinthians 4:6 says, “For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.”

This can be a difficult scripture for us to get our arms around. So let’s break it down into smaller pieces:

  • It is God who gives us the ability to shine. It is His light that touches our hearts.
  • The light that He is referring to in this scripture is very specific. It is the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.
  • We know about the love of God because of what He did for us through His Son, our Savior, Jesus. “For God so loved the world, that He gave His  only begotten Son, that whoever  believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. ” – John 3:16 
  • Because we know this, we have everything that we need to be a light in this world.
  • The darker the situation, the more noticeable and stronger our light becomes.

If we think about these things when we are confronted with darkness, we can shift the focus from ourselves, to God. God knows our struggles, He loves us, and He has a plan for us:

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. ” – Jeremiah 29:11 

With the knowledge of the glory of God, and His Son, Jesus, we can be the lights of the world that God intended for us to be.

I’d like to conclude today’s lesson by looking at the following scriptures. They all have to do with light.

  • “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” - Psalm 119:105
  • “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome  it.” - John 1:5 
  • Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.” - John 8:12
  • “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? - Psalm 27:1
  • “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. ” – Mathew 5:16 

Amen
