Topic: Knowing God, Genesis 1:3-5

Lesson #3

Text: And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning-- the first day. (Gen. 1:3-5)

We Praise you God

… for you created light by your word “become light and light became”

… for creation came to existence when you called it to come to existence

… for the darkness on the formless and empty earth you upgraded with light

... for you brought light even before the Sun, Moon and Stars were in its place

… for you are Light and in you there is no darkness to be found (1 Jn. 1:5)

… for you are God, who is light and you called light to existence

… for you are Truth, and you created all things in the light and not in darkness

… for you created to reveal your great wonders to all who have eyes (Jn. 3:21)

… for you declare in your written word that “light shines out of darkness”

… for you are God who made your light shine in our hearts (2 Cor. 4:6)

… for the light you gave in our heart is the knowledge of your glory displayed in the face of Jesus (2 Cor. 4:6)

… for bringing us from darkness into light by opening our eyes (Acts 26:18)

… for the power of the gospel that brings us into this glorious light

We Acknowledge that:

… According to the prophetic vision of Apostle John, when we your people come into your presence from this dark world, we will not need the sun or the moon to shine but your glory will give us light and the Lamb will be our lamp (Rev. 21:23)

… when we your people come to your presence forever, we will not need a lamp, or a the light of the sun for you of God will be the light and we will reign in your light forever. (Rev. 22:5)

… During our life here on earth we have an opportunity to come into your light by humbly believing in Jesus Christ. (Jn. 12:36; Jn. 3:16)

… During our life here on earth, we who have come into this marvelous light with our spiritual eyes opened, are appointed to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ, that is entrusted by the command of our God our Savior (Titus 1:3)

… We will hold onto your prophetic message of your Word, to be in the glory of your light forever are sure that we will not be disappointed.

We acknowledge God that through our trust in Jesus Christ:

… we who were once darkness, are now made the light in the Lord

… we are called to live as children of light (Eph. 5:8)

… we are all children of light

… we are all children of the day

… we do not belong to the night

… we do not belong to darkness (1 Thess. 5:5)

However, Father God we acknowledge that we have sinned:

… by rejecting Jesus Christ, the light from God

… by rejecting Jesus Christ, we have not become children of light (Jn. 12:36)

… by rejecting Jesus Christ, we remain children of darkness

… by not knowing Jesus Christ, we are darkness

… for some of us who believe in Jesus Christ, yet continue to walk as children of darkness and children of light.

… Please forgive us. We are sorry for our not believing in Jesus Christ.

… We are sorry for not walking as children of light
