Seeing it is God, that said, Light shall shine out of darkness, who shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 4.6.

The primary work of God’s Spirit and God’s word is to send light into darkness. Sin has so darkened man’s mind that if he is left alone he will have no knowledge of himself as to how dangerous his position is and that perdition awaits him in the future. From the spiritual standpoint, he is completely in the dark for he does not even know he needs a Saviour. Neither his affection nor his reasoning will give him any light. But now the light of God comes. It shines into his heart. It actually sheds its light on the ruinous scene and reveals the fallen state of the creature. Nothing is changed except the darkness has been dispelled. None of the things revealed under the light can satisfy God’s heart. Just as God’s light shone upon the formerly dark world, even so, the Christ of God now shines upon the darkened heart of a sinner.
