Good Morning October 14

It is rather overcast this morning. We always feel better when the sun is out. Somehow, that light and warmth penetrates deep into our being. Today we can even buy lamps that match the color temperature of natural sunlight so that we can feel better when we are inside on bad weather days. The sun’s light is important to us. In Scripture the sun is symbolic of Jesus, the Son. It is Jesus who gives light and life to the world. Even further Jesus said, “you are the light of the world…” (Matthew 5:16) He meant that because of Him, God’s love is at work in us to bring forth His nature in our lives. We are to reflect that love to others. By our life and actions, people should see His love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, and all that is part of Jesus’ nature. We don’t do it perfectly, but when people are around Christians, they should feel something of Christ’s warmth penetrating them. We are to be the light of the Son to our world.
