Welcome back to Truth from A to Z on this first Thursday in December. We are on the letter L. There are lots of choices for this letter of the alphabet. Add your verse/verses in the comments and I will add them to this post. If you post on your own blog leave your blog address in the comments and I’ll add a link here to your blog!
L is for Light:
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. And this is the judgement: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.
From Vera: Love, Lord and Life
“Hear my voice according to your steadfast love; O Lord, according to your justice give me life.”
Psalm 119:149 ESV
From Patsystitch: Light, Lamp
Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
From Happyone: L is for Laughter
Then was our mouth filled with LAUGHTER, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, the Lord as done great things for them.
Psalm 126:2 KJV
Bethany at Raindrops & Rainbows has a post up on her blog. Click over and visit. Her word is Life.
From Maristella: She chose Life, too.
L is for LIFE:
“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
Sing along with Angie: Light
“This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine.”
I’ll wait and see what verse or verses you share before I add more verses about the Light!
Time to add more verses on Light here:
The light shines in darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a witness, to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but came to bear witness about the light. The true light, which gives light to everyone was coming into the world.
John 11: 9
“If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world. But if anyone walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.
John 12: 35-36
So Jesus said to them, “The light is among you for a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness overtake you. The one who walks in darkness does not know where he is going. While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of light.”
John 12: 46
I have come into the world as light, so that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness.
The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light.
…for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light.
