Light That Pierces the Darkness,
What a powerful thing light is. Without light the world would be a very dull place indeed and so I am thankful to God for creating light, when he made the world. But without the darkness there would be no contrast to the light and we wouldn’t even have a concept of what light was or the need for it. You might be wondering why am I talking about light when this picture seems quite dark. Sure, maybe at first glance it does, but if you look a bit closer you will see that there is quite a lot of light in the picture, for without the light there would be no shadow. So, this led me to ponder on what the light was revealing, that without the light you would not have noticed. The light has highlighted the fact that the leaves on the trees are unique in their beauty and that there is yellow colour, on the ground. So I ask you the question; what is it your light is shining on? Are you highlighting beauty in others or are you highlighting the mistakes of yourself and those around you? In this season we need more people who will reflect the light of the Father, the love of our saviour Jesus Christ and the compassion of the Holy Spirit, so that the light will bring about unity, joy, hope, peace and refreshing, even if there might be some things brought to light that are ugly, the focus will not be on the difference, not on the bad or the mess, but on Jesus. Be one who shines the light, that points those around to the one who is the author of all light, the light of the world.
