Quote Category: Light

To trust God in the light is nothing, but trust him in the dark—that is faith.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

A Christian is not simply a person who is forgiven and goes to heaven. A Christian, in terms of his or her deepest identity, is a saint, a spiritually born child of God, a divine masterpiece, a child of light, a citizen of heaven.

Don’t shine so that others can see you. Shine so that through you, others can see Him.

Let your light shine. Do not obstruct it, or hide it, or mingle darkness with it. ‘Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee’ (Isa. 60:1). It is the light of love that you have received; let it shine. It is the light of truth; let it shine. It is the light of holiness; let it shine. And if you ask, How am I to get the light, and to maintain it in fulness? I answer, ‘Christ shall give you light’ (Eph. 5:14). There is light enough in Him who is the light of the world. ‘The Lamb is the light thereof’ (Rev. 21:23). There is no light for man but from the Lamb. It is the cross, the cross alone, that lights up a dark soul and keeps it shining, so that we walk in light as He is in the light; ‘for God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all.
