Sin devoured a once-perfect Eden, and the light that God originally spoke into existence has grown dimmer ever since. In the aftermath we, who were once robed in the glory of God, are left naked.
It’s dark and it’s cold; we fumble around seeking warmth and light. Botox? Alcohol? Anxiety and depression medication? Surely one of these will brighten our days.
God’s first command was let there be light. His first call to action was to create a light that would literally make darkness hide. God spoke light, and darkness ran.
Satan has worked tirelessly to attack those very first words God spoke on this planet and to cover this world in darkness. But God is not a liar. What He speaks will be done. He gives the command, “Let there be light,” and so there is.
Despite our nakedness, there is one truth we must hold on to until the midnight hour when Jesus returns. The echo of God’s voice in Eden can still be heard today. In the midst of darkness, “Let there be light!” He is still with us, and He calls each one to literally be His light to a fallen world. As you read these devotions, it is the authors’ prayer that you will stand firm in the beams of Heaven’s light – that you will find purpose and meaning in Life After Eden.
