Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. Psalms 119:105 NIV
The Bible is often referred to as a “light” for several reasons, both literal and metaphorical:
Metaphorical Light: In a metaphorical sense, the Bible is considered a “light” because it illuminates the path of moral and spiritual understanding. It provides guidance, wisdom, and insight into human nature, morality, and the nature of God. Just as light dispels darkness, the teachings of the Bible dispel ignorance and offer clarity and understanding.
Divine Revelation: The Bible is a source of divine revelation, containing messages from God that shed light on the nature of existence, the purpose of life, and the principles of righteousness.
Hope and Comfort: The Bible serves as a source of hope and comfort in times of difficulty, offering solace and encouragement through its messages of love, forgiveness, redemption, and salvation.
Spiritual Enlightenment: The Bible is a source of spiritual enlightenment, leading believers to deeper levels of understanding and connection with God and their fellow human beings.
