5 Bible Verses About Light – A Light In A Dark World

As a believer, we are called not only to walk in the light but also to be a source of light to others by doing good and glorifying the Father in heaven. Throughout the Old and New Testaments, you can find verses about light and its symbol of hope. Here are five Bible verses about light that offer hopeful reassurance: 

Psalms 18:28 

You, LORD, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light.” 

This verse reminds us that no matter where we are, God will turn our darkness into light. He will guide us through the very end of time.

Micah 7:8 

Do not gloat over me, my enemy! Though I have fallen, I will rise. Though I sit in darkness, the LORD will be my light.”

You can be reassured that whatever battle or difficult situation you’re facing, we will not stay down forever. We shouldn’t give the enemy joy or victory over our downfalls, but trust that God will help us with a light to get out of the darkness!

John 1:4-5 

In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”

God will overcome the darkness, and the same light of life that is in him is also in you. Therefore, we should not be afraid, as there is always hope because God has victory! 

Matthew 5:16 

In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Just like God is the light, you can be a source of light too. We should not be afraid of being watched under a microscope as Christians but focus on how Jesus calls us to share good deeds with others and glorify the Father.

John 8:12

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

Jesus Christ is the light of the world, and you are a child of light! We have the greatest hope and reassurance, the light of life.

Scripture reminds us that Jesus calls us to be a light in a dark world, just like He is to the world. Where can you be a light in this dark world today? We should look around us and see those who need a little light in their life, sharing our source of life and hope: Jesus.

Maybe it’s your spouse or children who need the light. Perhaps, while leaving lunch, you stumble across a hungry homeless person. We can feed them or give them a gift card to McDonalds. Here’s one recent example through ServeNow! Our national leaders empowered Addis and Genet in Ethiopia, two mothers struggling to provide and feed their children. Through people like you, a Micro-Enterprise grant made a tremendous difference in their lives!

Addis tearfully spoke, “ServeNow is a brighter light in the midst of the darkest night to me and my husband. Life has put us in a position where we were unable to feed ourselves, but now we rise up with hope and a future every day.”

Genet confidently shared, “I trusted God that a day as such would come through the heavier darkness in life. Also, I knew He would use someone I knew not to minimize or end the duration of the hunger of my children. Indeed, God always has remnants like ServeNow, who are there for the neediest ones and whom God uses to answer the prayers of the widows. Now life is different from what it looked like. At least we are not always hungry. My house and I will keep praying for ServeNow, and so will everyone who knows us.”

Your generosity can be a source of light, doing good and glorifying the Father in heaven. When you give to ServeNow, it helps vulnerable women like Addis and Genet to experience God’s light overcoming the darkness. So thank YOU to every person who gives to share Christ’s passion for the world by serving the most vulnerable through national churches and leaders. Together, let’s shine bright and show others how God meets us in our darkest times!

Share the Light, Give Where Most Needed
