LIGHT...FOR THE WORLD!
YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD...LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE BEFORE OTHERS...SO THAT THEY MAY SEE YOUR GOOD WORKS...AND GLORIFY YOUR FATHER IN HEAVEN. -Matthew 5:14-16 (ESV)
Imagine the results when the light comes up and lights our day. In winter it is a joy to finally see the light. When the sun goes down, we are plunged into darkness. Without light we could not even walk down the street with ease for fear of stumbling, or running into something.
I was driving down the street and a man was standing in the middle of the road, dark clothes on, and I did not even see him and had to swerve out of his way, so as not to hit him. I had my lights on but I could not see clearly. If I had hit him he would not have caught his bus.
The Moon does not create light, it only reflects the light from another, THE SUN!
Jesus says, "I am the light of the world..." John 8:12 (ESV) If you follow me, then the light is in you, and you are the light of life. Jesus says, You are the Light of the World... Matt. 5:14 (ESV) So let your light shine so that others can see it!
This is the way in which God keeps revealing to us what He purposes for our lives.
