God is who He is, whether we have words for Him or not.
I don’t want words to hold me back from complete knowledge and life in God. They are a tool–a help–a reminder (“re-mind-er”), but are incomplete references to the Essence of the Creator.
Nevertheless, words must be used to build concepts, understanding, inspiration beyond themselves. One of the most powerful words in the Bible is “light.” – mjd
The power that causes light to shine within the electric light bulb is part of the electric light. In fact, although that force itself [electricity] cannot be seen, it is just as really a part of the electric light as the wire and the glass that made its framework. The spiritual force that flows through us is the “breath of God” breathed into the “dust of the earth” of which our frames are made. It is the Eternal Being dwelling for a moment in a house of flesh.
“Ye are the light of the world,” said that amazing Carpenter whose light still shines down through the centuries. This is literally true. We are the electric light bulbs through whom the light of God reaches the world. Thus we are “part God.” This does not belittle God, any more than it belittles the sun to know that a square of sunlight on the floor is part of its infinite and eternal shining.
Knowing then that we are part of God, that His life within us is an active energy and that He works through the laws of our bodies, let us study to adjust and conform ourselves to those laws. When we do this with understanding and common-sense, we can speed up the natural healing forces of the body.
– Agnes Sanford, The Healing Light, 1947.
[Jesus said] While you have the Light, believe in the Light
–have faith in it, hold to it, rely on it–
that you may become sons of the Light and be filled with light.
Whoever sees Me sees Him Who sent me.
I have come a light into the world,
so that whoever believes on Me may not continue to live in darkness.
… I have not come to judge
and to condemn
and to pass sentence
and to inflict penalty on the world,
but to save the world.
Amplified Bible: John 12: 36a, 45, 46, 47b
