Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.
And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.

Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.

The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armour of light.
This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.
For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light.
