Light changes everything, doesn’t it?
This past Tuesday I came home from church and thought it was a beautiful day, too beautiful to eat inside. I thought we should go down to the park and cook our dinner on the grill. Great plan. Only I hadn’t realized how early it was getting dark these days. As we packed up the car, the level of excitement in our house was going up…and the sun was going down. As you can probably understand, by now we had too much momentum to just stop. So, if you happened to be walking by Buddy Attic park, and you were wondering who that crazy family was that was cooking out in the dark, well, it was us. We had a great time. But it was a completely different experience than I was expecting—because we had no light.
Light is such a powerful force. It is no wonder that it us used in so many religions. Light sets you free. Light is symbol for cleansing, for rebirth. Light provides for safety. To have light on a subject is to have understanding on a subject. See the light, the light will set you free.
But the question is, what is the true light? Are all lights equal? Is there one true light? If so, how do we know If we are following the true light? Especially in our pluralistic age, these questions are just as relevant today as they were in Jesus’ time.
