Light exposes the true character of everything because light makes everything easy to see. That's why it says: "Wake up, sleeper! Rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you." ~ Ephesians 5:13-14 (God's Word)
God's light radiates our lives, as believers. Because Jesus broke the powers of darkness when He burst forth from the clutches of the grave, we, too, can live our lives to the fullest--and embrace this Light!
This is the month we celebrate the Resurrection of Christ from the dead, the most jubilant season of the entire church year. The greatest gift of joy we can offer those who do not know Jesus is this Blessed Truth.
I remember singing a tender song when I was a small child: "This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine." Perhaps, you sang it, too. What I didn't realize then was the power of that song is the reference to the the light of God's amazing love and great grace, shining out of our hearts into the darkness of our world. (Matthew 5:16)
As we look toward the Cross and what Jesus accomplished there on Good Friday, and anticipate Easter Sunday's splendor of Hope and glorious Blessing, let's allow our souls to "wake up" with the reception of that Light...and Love.
