light has become so many things to us these days. It is opening to us the history of the universe by the ways it is created in stars and then how its modified and molded on its billion year journey to us.
It is the speed limit of our physical universe.
It carries our information, our words to one another across oceans in light pipes we put there.
It makes our nights like day in our houses and on our streets.
We use it the measure space and time and to navigate our oceans and through the space around us.
It repairs our eyes and cuts through steel.
And we think it can seal an email so securely that we can always tell if it’s been opened by someone trying to snoop.
Light was God’s first word in creation.
when God created the universe
God first created light
and in light
the history of the universe
when God became man
he brought light into our darkness
which sets us free
and exposes the designs of the evil one
when the Holy Spirit
enlivens the Word of Truth within us
this word is a light to our feet
and guides us
in the ways we should go
and each of us
brings the light of God
from our own lamps
into our worlds
what sort of light are you?
