Are You Reflecting His Light?
Have you ever met someone who seemed to glow with the Light of God’s love? They have this excitement and joy that is contagious, and you wonder, either they’re crazy or lit up with an internal, God-inspired fire. I love those people!
The other day I came across this short story about how even the least of us can express and reflect the most of our Heavenly Father…
A well-known Bible teacher had just finished speaking to a large class of business people on the Christians’ responsibility to be a light in the world. He had emphasized that as believers we all have the obligation to reflect the Light of the world, our Lord Jesus.
After the class, one the members related to him an experience he had in his home that impressed upon him the same truth. He said that in the darkest corner of his basement he had made a surprising discovery. Some potatoes had sprouted and were growing. At first, he could not figure out how they had gotten enough Light to sprout and grow. Then he noticed a shiny copper kettle, which was brightly polished, hanging from the ceiling near the basement window. It was in a perfect position to reflect the sun’s rays onto the potatoes in that darkest corner of the room.
The person relating the story said, “When I saw that, I thought, I may not a preacher or a teacher with the ability to expound Scripture, but a least I can be a copper kettle catching the rays of the SON and reflecting His light to someone else to help them grow.”
Remember that we all can reflect God’s love and Light to someone else, helping them grow in God’s grace and mercy.
FOR GOD, WHO SAID, “LET LIGHT SHINE OUT OF DARKNESS,” MADE HIS LIGHT SHINE IN OUR HEARTS TO GIVE US THE LIGHT OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD’S GLORY DISPLAYED IN THE FACE OF CHRIST.”
