πŸ”†The Light Of The World πŸŒ™

{taken last summer}

We know how it reads, but in light (no pun intended) of today's eclipse let's look at it through different glasses and slowly this time.  

So turn to Genesis, Chapter 1 verses 3-5, there it says,  

And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.

and now look down to verses 14-18

14 And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth.” And it was so. 16 God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. 17 God set them in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth, 18 to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fourth day.

A few days ago I wrote the following in my daily journal,
"This morning there is the sweetest sliver of moon 
hanging within the branches of the big Beech tree outside my window. The rain we have had for 4 full days is finally over. 
I think of all the excitement that the upcoming eclipse will cause. 
The moon will align with the sun and shadow it's light. This display in the heavens should naturally give way to praising the creator, but many will never give any thought to the reverence of the creator. How our God took "form and void" and nothingness and set to creating the heavens and the earth.

Look up Psalm 8:3, see where David writes,

"When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them."

Today, when we ponder this act of creation, let us think of how God is putting His artistry on display for our pleasure. So, as I sit here to finish this post I pray that many would come to the Lord and put their trust and faith in thee light of the world, our Living God!

"I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."
John 8:12
