Weekly Pursuit – Week 2 of March

Col. 1:12 “Giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you for a share of the allotted portion of the saints in the light.”




Christ, our portion, is to be enjoyed by us in the light. The Bible reveals that the light is related to God, the Word of God, Christ, the life of Christ, the believers, and the church. God alone is the source of light. The Word of God, Christ, the life of Christ, the believers, and the church can all be light because they have God as their source.


Psalm 119:105 says that the Word of God is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. The Word of God is light because it contains God, and God is light. Therefore, the words of the Bible are the shining of light. God and Christ are one. Since God is light, Christ also is light. Christ is the light in a definite way as the light of society, of mankind. The life of Christ is also light. When we receive Christ as life, this life becomes light in us, shining upon us and enlightening us from within. Those who believe in Christ are also the light. In Philippians 2:15 Paul says that the believers “shine as luminaries in the world.” In ourselves we have no light. The source of our light is not ourselves but Christ as the Spirit. In Revelation 1:20 we see that the church is a lampstand, a stand that holds and supports a burning lamp. The lamp is Christ with God in Him as light. In the universe there is one light, God Himself. The Triune God is the unique light. (Life-study of Colossians, msg. 7)
