THE WORD IS LIFE AND LIGHT
In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself….
In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of men.
And the Light shines on in the darkness, for the darkness has never overpowered it [put it out or absorbed it or appropriated it, and is unreceptive to it]. John 1:1,4,5
Life overcomes death, and light overcomes darkness. The Word of God is both life and light; therefore, it contains the power to overcome the darkness and death that prevail in people’s lives.
