In Matthew 5:14-16, Jesus tells us, “You are the light of the world ”
We used to live at one of the higher elevations in Butler Co., Ohio, and on a clear night the sky is awesome with countless number of stars. One thing that my wife watches is the moon, and no she isn’t a moon worshiper but a creator worshiper! In the course of 30 days the moon appears to change. Sometimes it is just a sliver of light. Then it will grow as the days go by to a quarter, half, then 3 quarters of light. Then especially it seems in the Fall the whole moon will be glowing an will light up our whole farm!
This is not light created by the moon. It cannot generate any illumination on its own. The light that we see is based on how the moon is turned toward the sun. We see a little or a lot. When it is positioned just right we get the whole effect.
I’m here to tell you that is how God wants us to position ourselves so that we will be turned just so right with God and on His path of righteousness that we will be illuminating the full light of Jesus Christ in our lives, in our homes, in our families, and at our church. We cannot generate any light of our own. It all comes from God’s son, Jesus Christ!
Be wise today and always - reflect the Son's light in your life.
