Light the greatest of Gods created works. The most important and powerful work of God is light. Without light there would be no form of life. Light is always associated with goodness. Its source is in God and the light defeats darkness. In the Hebrew, the word darkness is misery, destruction, and death. The light is the eternal light of God, which cannot be extinguished. And Jesus is the light of the world. Jesus is not only the manifestation of light. He is the source of all life and light.

GEN 1:1-2 In the Beginning When' God' created the heavens and the earth, the earth was completely formless and empty, with nothing but darkness draped over the deep. God's Spirit hovered over the face of the waters.

4 And God saw the light as pleasing and beautiful; he used the light to dispel the darkness. God called the light "Day," and the darkness "Night." And so, evening gave way to morning the first day. TPT
