God created light

First essential for life
God's first act in preparing the earth for life was to create light.

Think about it!

  • Light fills all space available to it but will not invade space closed to it
  • Light can be everywhere at once

  • Light is illumination, enabling us to find our way
  • Light is communication by written words and symbols to our mind
