2 Peter 1 B

I like how Peter describes Scripture (I’m assuming that’s what he’s referring to when he’s talking about “what the prophets wrote” but I could be wrong): light in the dark place.

This is a familiar comparison. Authors in the Bible regularly refer to God’s presence as lighting up the dark. And as believers we are called to light up dark places with the gospel.

I like when the Bible acknowledges the dark. When people are suffering, they want to it to be acknowledged! They want to be heard and to have someone flip on the light for them.

God’s word is so helpful when we’re reaching in the dark.
