The first recorded word was “Let there be light” – and there was light. Notice the word was “Let there be!” That was no word of striving effort to obtain something.
“The same God who said, ’Let light shine out of darkness!’ has kindled a light in our hearts, whose shining is to make known His glory (his opinion of us) as He has revealed it in the features of Jesus Christ.” 2Cor.4:6. Knox.
What God was able to communicate in the features of Christ was never to be interpreted as an example for us but of us! We are not doing window shopping, or Christmas shopping, we are gazing into the mirror of our true likeness revealed and redeemed in him.
