My husband and I were on our way home from dinner just as the sun was getting ready to set. It was quite brilliant peaking through the cypress trees. Though we may not see it during the nighttime hours, it is always full. I think that it's quite interesting that the Bible uses light to describe Jesus. Just as the sun is the light of the world, Jesus is the true light. The sun warms the earth and causes it to flourish an grow, feeding us and keeping us alive. Jesus feeds us with wisdom, causing our minds to grow in knowledge of Him and saving us from eternal death. I am so grateful for my life. Though in this world we may encounter trouble, we know that Jesus overcame the world, defeated death and its hold, and has given us everlasting life where we will dwell in the shadow of the almighty and never face darkness again. Living in the brilliant light of Jesus is where I want to be. How about you?
the people dwelling in darkness have seen a great light, and for those dwelling in the region and shadow of death, on them a light has dawned." Matthew 4:16
