John 1:5 Verse of the Day 11/15/13
This verse is part of the opening prologue of John’s Gospel. Jesus is the word made flesh, the light shining in the darkness. This contrast between light and darkness represents both the struggle between truth and falsehood and belief and unbelief. Falsehood will not ultimately overcome the truth, and unbelief will not ultimately overcome true faith.
In every day life there are many things and events that cause us to struggle in our faith. As you pray, thank the Lord for his promise that the truth will ultimately prevail and our faith will not be overcome by unbelief. Ask the Lord to help you believe and persevere in your faith, and thank Him that Jesus has defeated the darkness and made us a part of his victory through faith.
