I always stand amazed when God is teaching me from different venues---and all are the same lesson. Why would I be amazed--when He has done it over and over? The current sermon series at church and the women's Bible study I am attending have been focusing on "The Light". I have been reminded over and over of the Source of Light in my life. The opposite of the light is of course the dark. Why would I stand in the dark when I can always be in the light?
Think of the solar eclipse--the moon stands between the sun's light and the earth--hiding the brilliance of the light.
The Light comes from Him. We are privileged to be chared with sharing the light. The question is are we reflecting His light for all to see or are we absorbing the light and then casting a shadow based upon our actions-which blocks the view of the light. Are we blocking the light's refraction and not reflecting the light- leaving only darkness around us. I am praying to not be a dark shadow ---but instead a clear lens to refract the rays and show His glory.
"God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all."
I John 1:5
