<==CAN YOU SEE IT?
I was taking a picture of this kerosene lamp for a post I'd written for sbcIMPACT. After I uploaded it to my computer today, I saw this little cross reflected against the glass chimney. I didn't use a flash on my camera so the cross is due to the flame of light itself. To some this would mean zilch. To me, it bespeaks the marvelous treasure of God's presence in my life.
You see, one of the posts I was writing actually had the scripture "...in Your light do we see light." Psalm 36:9b
in YOUR light--God's light.
do we see light--Christ's light.
From the Light of Jesus in our lives comes forth His light that is seen by the world. And our Lord tells us, "You are the light of the world." Matthew 5:14a.
We are the light of the world. Christians. Believers. In Christ we have our illuminating power. In Christ we have the love, the joy, the peace of the Savior. In the heart of every Christian is the illuminating presence of the cross. "Let your light so shine before men that they may see your moral excellence and your praiseworthy, noble, and good deeds and recognize and honor and praise and glorify your Father Who is in heaven." Matthew 5:16. Amplified.
Have you seen the Light in another's life lately? Have you been drawn closer to the Light as a result? selahV
