Light is invisible until and unless it reflects off something.
Reflected light in the sky is white, pure and undefiled. We could not see the moon, for instance, unless it reflected light from the sun. Most light from deep space reflected off stars millions of light years away is white.
The Bible teaches us,
God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 1 John 1:5.
Just as light reveals the world around us, God’s light reveals Himself to us through His word and through our relationship with Jesus Christ. As God’s light reveals Himself to us, He desires that we reflect His light to others.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:16.
As I read my Bible today and meditate on Scripture, I am asking myself, “Am I reflecting the light of God to others?” How about you?
