Lightness


Chicago, Illinois. In the waiting room of the Union Station by Jack Delano (1914–1997)

good afternoon, friends,

We had a party this afternoon and now we are home, fans blowing, enjoying air conditioning and I’m thinking about this study. Kids are playing with toys, reading books…some quiet in the house. God knew how much we needed to be at a church that could be community for us and He brought us to a new church. I’m reflecting on the lightness it has brought my spirit to come home. Watching my kids run around a church like I used to do at their age, pitching in to clean and help feels as natural as being at home, watching Joshua settle in with the men, these are all gifts to my heart and mind. Going to a mega church was wonderful for many reasons. I listed so many during my time on this blog but what J and I realized was how much we missed community at church.

God knows what we need. He cares for every single one.

This afternoon, as I look at the next day of Precepts, this day is a full concentration on light. Would you like to come along? Pshaw, of course you would!

Matthew 5: 14 You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.

15 Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a peck measure, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house.

16 Let your light so shine before men that they may see your moral excellence and your praiseworthy, noble, and good deeds and recognize and honor and praise and glorify your Father Who is in heaven.

  1. light of the world: me, you, us. :) (your witness for God)
  2. lamps don’t go under tn Or “a bowl”; this refers to any container for dry material of about eight liters (two gallons) capacity. It could be translated “basket, box, bowl” (L&N 6.151).: they go on stands (candlestick) and give light (to shine) to the house
  3. our light needs to shine before men (Light requires an organ adapted for its reception (Mat 6:22). Where the eye is absent, or where it has become impaired from any cause, light is useless. Man, naturally, is incapable of receiving spiritual light inasmuch as he lacks the capacity for spiritual things, 1Cr 2:14. Hence believers are called ‘sons of light,’Luk 16:8, not merely because they have received a revelation from God, but because in the New Birth they have received the spiritual capacity for it.
So, next let’s look through the rest of the Bible to find other references to light:
1Kings 11:36 Yet to his son I will give one tribe, that David My servant may always have a light before Me in Jerusalem, the city where I have chosen to put My Name.  Well, light in this instance God has blessed David with the knowledge that he will never be without an heir on the throne in Jerusalem. This word light used here actually means tillable or untilled or fallow ground. Interesting, isn’t it? God is saying this ground will always have the roots of David. :)
Psalm 27: The Lord is my Light and my Salvation—whom shall I fear or dread? The Lord is the Refuge and  Stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid? This word, light: light of day, light of heavenly luminaries (moon, sun, stars),day-break, dawn, morning light, light of life, Jehovah as Israel‘s light. This is beautiful, isn’t it? God is our light, our morning light, our light. My breathing gets easier just thinking of this.
Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.  God’s Word, declare it, friends! Make this your day that His Word shall become your lamp to your feet..and a light to your path..check out this picture. May His light, His Word guide you home.

As the darkness fell upon the obscure tribal village, the mother picked up her child to get into the house that had a bright lamp. We stood awestruck, absorbing the beauty of the simple rustic moment, trying to steal away some part of it forever frozen in time. by Koustav2007

Well, I’d better get on. I now have a girl watching a Barbie movie. A boy in front of Narnia…so to dinner prep I go. Blessings and light…Pray on.
