Advent: Glowing


12-8-11 Ephesians 5:6-14 Illuminated

My thoughts for today’s scripture come from verse 13. It reminded me of glow in the dark toys. My kids loved these, and now so do my grandkids. Truth be told the whole concept of glow in the dark anything has always caught my attention. Remember hiding under blankets or going into a closet, someplace dark to be awed by the glowing item? Remember the disappointment that would come if the toy hadn’t been in the light long enough and either only dimly glowed or didn’t glow at all?

Our text tells us that if we have had the light of God shone upon us then we will be illuminated. We will becoming lights. We will glow in the darkness of the world around us.

 So how’s your glow going?
