Daily Devotional | Loving the Light

  • February 6, 2023 | 1 John 2:10

The Phos Hilaron is one of the oldest hymns we know. As lamps were lit at evening, the early Christians would sing: “O gracious light, pure brightness of the everliving Father in heaven, O Jesus Christ, holy and blessed! Now as we come to the setting of the sun, and our eyes behold the vesper light, we sing your praises, O God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.”

A Conversation with February's Devotional Author

From the Editor

Hello friends,

Have you ever tried to drive on a dark and foggy night? Even the high beams on your car have trouble cutting through the darkness. It is frustrating not to see where you are going. Sometimes our faith journey feels that way.

But in 1 John, we are told that God is light and, when we walk with Him, we not only benefit from His light but reflect it to others! In 1 John 1: 7, we read, “If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son, purifies us from all sin.”

Do you need God’s light on your path? If so, we invite you to this month’s Bible study on 1, 2, and 3 John.

Author Bradley Baurain returns with his Bible study titled Walk in the Light s to guide us through these important letters written by a disciple who walked with Jesus. John’s message is filled with life and hope and will help you navigate even the darkest days.

But, before we begin, please join us for a YouTube conversation. We just posted our February video!

Like you, I’m looking forward to a month of soaking in God’s light!
