Genesis 1:4 Devotion by Stephen Taylor

Genesis 1:4

God saw that the light was good, and He separated the light from the darkness.


A couple of nights ago, during Bible study, Anthony Purpero brought the first four verses of the Bible up, and the point he made really struck me!


In verses 1-3, God declares Who He is and His sovereignty, and then in verse 4, He separates what is His or what is good! Throughout the entire Bible, God is separating what is His from the world! You are either separated from the world as a child of God or separated from God as an enemy of the Cross. You choose, but since the beginning, God has been separating what is His from what is not!


I don’t know about you, but I have lived a life full of darkness, and I never want to go back. A life without the Lord is bleak, sad, scary, depressing, and overwhelming all the time, and quite frankly, a miserable existence. But then you meet Jesus. He comes swooping in and sets you free! Suddenly, things are a little brighter, the days not so burdensome, the future not scary but exciting, and it’s all because He gives you Himself! Every day is a step toward the Lord or away from Him. What way will you choose today?


Matthew 25:34 – “Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.”


Matthew 25:41 - “Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.’”


There is your final separation -either from the Lord or from the world, and it’s straight from the mouth of Jesus. The question isn't if but when, and what side will you be on? You can be a sheep or a goat. The choice is yours!


God bless! I love you all! Glory, Honor, and Praise forever to God Almighty, King Jesus, and the Holy Spirit the Spirit of Truth!
