Matthew 5:13, 16
‘You are the light of the world. ... Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.
You are light
Who am I? This question is emblazoned on the heart of every human being. We come into existence having had no choice in the matter, given life as a gift and a question.
Yet, here the unspoken question of every human heart finds an answer: You are light.
The life in you is the energy of the most High God, a light unique and intended to shine with its particular radiance and color that God may be known and praised as the Holy Source of all that is good and lovely under the sun.
Glory comes as the light of God’s love is refracted through the prism of our being, divine light broken into particular colors and intensity as it penetrates, pervades and passes through our unique identities.
In the light of eternal love, each of us shines to illumine other souls, shedding the light of divine love and beauty on whatever small or large corner of creation God has placed within the compass of our lives.
You are light. There is no room for thinking yourself small or of little significance. There is light, joy, love, wonder, beauty and hope within you.
Open your heart and be what you are. The glory of God is you ... shining and alive with the light of an everlasting love.
Pr. David L. Miller
