“Then God said, ‘Let there be light’; and there was light. God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness” (Genesis 1:3-4).
In the blackest moments of our life, we need to recall that God’s voice is the force that tears a wide hole in the fabric of darkness; that He is present and working. Throughout scripture we see God acting as a very disruptive, uncontrollable agent in the midst of a broken world and broken people. The cross is our constant reminder of God working redemptively to bring light out of darkness.
