10 Bible Verses About Light
Light has long been symbolic of good and it has many other positive connotations including hope, life and warmth. We talk of "the light at the end of the tunnel" and people "lighting up rooms" - on the one hand referring to hope and on the other, joy. In a literal sense it helps us feel safe, protects us when we encounter danger by illuminating our surroundings so that obstacles can be managed, and provides us with nourishment. Parallels can be drawn between these three examples of what light can do and the symbolic way that it is used in the Bible. As the light of the world, Jesus drives out the metaphorical darkness in our lives, God's word illuminates our path, providing us with guidance on how to deal with life's hurdles, and a healthy relationship with God nourishes us spiritually. There are so many wonderful Bible passages on light driving out darkness.
