The Enlightenment
a John 1:4
devotional

God’s Word says, “In Him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind” — John 1:4

The Enlightenment —
the age of history,
just three centuries ago,
when we in the West
resolved boldly
to live largely
by human reason and science,
to prosper and be
politically free.

My Enlightenment —
how much more enlightened
I would be
if I now
resolved boldly
to live largely
by God’s Reason and Word,
to be soul-rich and
completely free.
Then I would be
a true scientist of life,
enlightened and enlivened
by the Light and the Life
that made the world.
