“Life and Light” ~ Psalm 36:9 EXPOSITION

For with you is the fountain of life;
    in your light we see light. Psalm 36:9

This verse is made of simple words, but like the first chapter of John’s Gospel, it is very deep

Source of Life – For with you is the fountain of life;

The source of life is the creator, the Father in Heaven. He provides the exuberance and growth in our lives. Only with you (Father, God) is the fountain of life. There is no other God whom can provides life as He is the Creator.

Source of Spiritual Life

The source is the Holy Spirit.

Source of your light – Only in your light, we see light.

The source is Jesus Christ who had come as the light, as the Son of God. In your Son, we see light, and receive our salvation which is eternal life.

So in the above beautiful and profound verse, it packs together God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. The Trinity concept is exemplified in this profound and compact verse.
