Excerpt from Christ Is All: The Gospel of the Pentateuch; Genesis
But what is the eldest wonder, which steps forth to usher in the train of harmony and grace? It is light. Do you ask what is the chamber of its birth? And what the art, by which it is composed? The reply is, God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
To khow more is impossible. And it is impossible, just because more knowledge would neither tend to profit, nor to good. There are, how ever, truths linked with light, which are open to our earnest search. It is a casket rich in Gospel jewels. In its fair form we see the fairer features of the Lord of light. The Holy Spirit – no doubtful guide proclaims, That was the true light, which lighteth every man, which cometh into the world. Jesus, too, exalts it as His emblem, when he instructs, I am the light of the world; he that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. The prophet, too, gazing on the rays of Christ, rings, The people that walked in darkness have men a great light. The apostle, intent on Jesus, exhorts, Show forth the praises of Him, who hath called you out of darkness into His marvellous ligh We should close our eyes, then, on the high purposes of light, if we failed to trace therein the transcendent beauties of salvation’ s Dayspring.
