"the people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned." Matthew 4:16 NIVFor those of us who know Him, this is the very time for us to live in full, glorious, vivid living color! That is what Jesus did when He came to this dark planet as the Light of the world. He shone more light into the world in 3½ years than the world has known in all the other years of its previous history combined. That light is still shining and He wants to shine through us like the sun through a prism!
"There it was--the true Light was then coming into the world the genuine, perfect, steadfast Light that illumines every person." John 1:9 AMPThe color of a thing is moot unless there is light shining on it. The darker it is all around, the more striking the colors when the light hits. We have an extraordinary privilege and responsibility to be the full rainbow of color God created, in a world that knows only greyscale. Their starving eyes need to know more than grey upon grey upon black--they need all the colors of a faith placed in the Creator of light and color--Jesus Christ Himself!! I want to be a prism to refract the Son's light to others. I want to be like the torch of an autumn tree, blazing with color as winter-death comes on. Let's live in living color!! Here is an old song I love to remind us of His colorful life! What are some practical ways we can live in color? What will you do this week to be a vivid display of the Light of the world shining through you? Share your ideas with me!!
