From the beginning of time, the sun and moon have always served to light our way. While the sun lights the day, giving life and light to everything on the earth, the moon lights the night, reflecting the sun’s light toward the parts of the earth facing the cold and dark of space. Though not as bright as the sun, in the absence of any other light, it dispels the darkness and lights our way until the dawning of a new day.
This is an amazing picture of our relationship, not just to God, but to our brothers and sisters in Christ.
Sometimes, when our way seems darkest and we feel like we are a million miles from the presence of God, all we have to do is cling to the encouragement, love, direction, and “reflected light” coming from our Christian family. We can lean on the love of Jesus — shining through others– until the direct light of God is once again evident to us.
Are you having trouble seeing the Son?
Just remember… In the darkest of nights, there is a lot to be said for allowing the moon to light your way.
