"For God who said, 'Let there be light in darkness', has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ."
2 Corinthians 4:6
Recently my husband Joel went out in the dark and took pictures of the flowers in our yard. Everything looked dark when he focused the camera on this hot pink geranium, but when the light from the camera flash hit the flower, it's beauty was visible. What a difference the light made!
It is the same for us who come to know Christ. The darkness of sin, the broken world we live in, and the emptiness we feel all leaves when we let Christ into our hearts. Our sins are forgiven and we become people who live in the world but are no longer of the world. With His light shining on and in us, our beauty becomes visible too!
A chorus that comes to mind for me..
"Let our light shine is glory....glory
Let our light shine in glory to the Lord
