"All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. And the Light shines in the darkness, but the darkness did not comprehend it..."
Light. What is Light?
Websters defines Light as: 1. A measure or supply of light; Illumination.
2. A state of awareness or understanding, especially as derived from a particular source.
So lately, I don't know why, but I've had this thing for Light. I've wanted to know more about it, what significance it has, why it's important, etc. And as I read this scripture earlier today, I got this kind of thought, or revelation if you will...
Light is our life source. Light is what keeps us from being overwhelmed with darkness.
When you switch on the light in a dark room, is there any point of darkness where the light has hit? Is there any place where the light's not seen? Even in the shadows the light is more overwhelming than the darkness. If you sit in the shadows the light is still visible, the light is constantly occuring until you shut that light off.
When we let the Light consume every single part of our lives, that Light starts to seep out of us and light everything else. But when we let darkness in, little bits at a time, not noticing it, we start to dim, we start to lose the Light, our life-source. We start to fit into the shade of the world, the darkness becomes our camoflage.
This is why Light is so important. This is why we need the Light; to stay alive.
We are the sons and daughters of Light...
"You are the Light of the world...Let your Light shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in Heaven."
...Matthew 5.14 & 16
