Today’s Daily Light:
Bringing Light Into Darkness
2 Corinthians 4:4 Paul writes “The god (Satan) of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.”
The ‘Eclipse’ declares the ‘glory’ of God at many levels. The obvious declaration of glory is simply the beyond-understanding mechanical and physical science that is involved in the existence and sustainment of a solar system. Duh…over the top…beyond profound…call it… ‘Gi-normous’. Mega-Wow. What kind of mind…power…does it take to create and sustain a solar system???
And then consider the comparative analogy related to the ‘light’ that the resurrection of God-the-Son, Jesus, brought into the darkness with His triumph over darkness and death. We were all in darkness…the path of totality of darkness….blind to the truth of the light of God….and God chose to give us light and freedom from blindness and darkness and give us eternal light..in and through His Son, Jesus. And ‘THAT’ is beyond Gi-normous!
On the surface level of just common sense…we who have seen and experienced the light (salvation in and through Jesus)…we struggle with the reality that the majority of the people on the planet…let me say that again…the majority….do not see or personally know Jesus to be God, the Son of God, Creator and Lord of the life…Lord of the universe. How can that be…we even have events in the heavens that declare His glory….every day that we awake and see a sunrise….see a sunset…it screams of His existence….how can they not know and see.??
And the word of God says that they cannot see because they have been blinded by the power of the dark side… the word says the ‘god’ (Satan) of this present age…the age of this temporary time on planet earth…this time where we live a short part of our eternal life…here…and it is in this short time wherein we will either come to know the ‘light’ of God’s salvation…come to know Jesus who is the light of the world…or we won’t. And thus..the gravity of the situation is stark…it is an eternal bottom line situation….the fight for life and death…eternal life and death…and thus here we stand..us who have been called…by Grace…into this glorious eternal light with a Gi-normous glorious God who is our Savior. And we know that we know Him…we know that He alone is eternal life and light…but all around us are people that are blind and cannot and do not know Him…and such is our calling and work….to be light to the lost world around us….’so that’ we can be all that we were intended to be…to be light in the darkness.
John 8:12 Jesus said “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
