Researchers at Northwestern University have discovered when a sperm and egg unite that a zinc-colored spark of light ignites at the moment of conception. This was a stunning and unexpected discovery regarding the origins of life.
Whenever any form of God’s creativity takes place light is introduced into the process of transformation. The process of creation included the words of God, “Let there be light.” In human beings, spiritual freedom comes when the light of God’s truth illuminates the darkness of deception. The Word of God is described as “a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” The entire process of our lives is a record of the effects of the introduction of light.
You were physically born with a spark of light and you were born again spiritually with that same creative light when you received the life of Christ. You have been called to an ever-increasing manifestation of light until the day of your physical death when the original spark of your physical life yields to the greater light of eternal life. The light that first indwelled you when you were born again will faithfully carry you into the presence of the One who is the Light of all Life. Let that reality create confidence in your heart and let its illumination guide you through the darkness of the coming season. The darkness before you will have to yield to the light within you because the light you carry is the evidence that death no longer has a place of victory in your life.
“The way of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, which shines ever brighter until the full light of day” (Proverbs 4: 18).
