My husband and I decided to follow The Bible Project’s Read Scripture reading plan that goes through Genesis to Revelations in a year.

How is it that in the Presence of God, there is fullness of joy? Because in His Presence, there is light. And Jesus is the “true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world” (John 1:8) “The Light shines on in the darkness and the darkness did not understand it or overpower it or appropriate it or absorb it [and is unreceptive to it].” (John 1:5, AMP)
