Light In The Darkness
Fireworks seen from my balcony
Happy New Year everyone!
“May the joy of celebrating our Saviour’s birth remain in your heart to be your strength each day…to refresh your delight in Him…to be the light that shines into the lives of others.” – Bonnie Rickner Jensen
In my previously post Salt, Light and City On The Hill, I wrote that light creates images of causing darkness to flee and truth to be highlighted. As we share the good news of the gospel of Jesus, we are indeed light to the world. You don't have to curse the darkness as a Christian. No. Just shine the light. Darkness disappears of its own accord! Share the truth and love of Christ, and fulfil that great commission!
When I saw the fireworks in my balcony on New Year's Eve, God confirmed this message to me again. Truly when the fireworks (bright light) appeared and shone, the darkness around the neighbourhood disappeared straight away.
The fireworks also reminded me that this life is brief. Like Moses says in Psalm 90:10, "The length of our days is seventy years— or eighty, if we have the strength; yet their span is but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away. "
But what we learn here, and what we experience here, has eternal significance. I feel that two of the most important laws in my life (which are also my new year resolutions) are: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind' ; and, 'Love your neighbor as yourself."
Lord, help me to love you and love people with all of my being, and be a reflection of Your light. In Jesus' name, amen.
