Light diffused is still light. It may not be bright, but it isn't totally dark! What is it that keeps it from shining crazy bright? Why doesn't it stream from every pore?
Is your light more like the sun on a cloudy day, a lamp draped with a scarf, or a meteorite streaking through the night sky?
Is it powerful or weak? Do you ever wonder? Do you want it to be brighter?
I was thinking about the light of heaven, of our God and Savior. It is described as the brightest light that is, or ever will be, yet it doesn't hurt your eyes. It's brightness doesn't make you turn, cover your eyes, or hide your face.
It is warm, welcoming, and beckons you to run to it.
Do you wonder how? The brightest light we have on earth will burn your eyes and make you blind. You certainly don't want to gaze at it or run to it. So, what's the difference?
My theory.......It's Pure.
I imagine, or believe the light of heaven is powered by the energy of love. Perfect love. Perfect light. Perfect glory.
I have no facts to back this up. All I can say is it's my blog, and my theory. lol
I will say that scripture says God is love, and Jesus is the light of the world. So, God is love, which is also the light of the world. Which is perfect, warm, forgiving, inviting, and eternal.
Oh, how I can't wait to walk into that light. What a glorious day that will be!! Until then, I pray I allow His light to shine through me a little brighter every day. And, I pray you will run to Him who is the light of the world!
