John 1:5 - "And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it." Christ entered into this dark world to give it spiritual light. The word translated 'comprehend' can mean 1) to take hold of; 2) to overpower; 3) to understand. This verse may mean that darkness did not positively take hold of or understand the light, or that darkness did not negatively overcome the light. Both statements are true. Humans did not appropriate or understand the light, nor did they overtake or overpower it. Although Satan and his forces resist the light, they cannot thwart its power. In short, Jesus is life and light; those who accept Him are "sons of light." As the creation of light was the beginning of original creation (Gen. 1:3), so when believers receive the light, we become part of the new creation (2 Cor.4:3-6). Lord, thank you for our New Creation and please Bless all our brothers and sisters!!!
