 BRING ON THE FLOODLIGHTS

Today’s readings are Zechariah 1 – 3 and Luke 11.  We are reading from the New Living Translation.

I once heard an actor say that, If all the world is a stage, then I want better lighting.   It’s a common direction for actors performing, to ask for the light. They have to find the light on the stage and make sure that they are acting in the light.  

We are not actors, but we do need to find the Light.  We need to fill our eyes with the light of his love. We need to make sure that we are looking to God and not to Self – that we are looking to Jesus, and not to Religion.  Jesus says,

Make sure that the light you think you have is not actually darkness.  If you are filled with light, with no dark corners, then your whole life will be radiant, as though a floodlight were filling you with light. (Lk 11:35-36 NLT)

We need to make sure that we are looking into the true light of his love, my friends, and not looking to the self, or religion, or any other false lights.  Queen Sheba and the people of Ninevah responded to the light of God’s wisdom, mercy and love.  But religion, tradition, and self can, tragically, eclipse the light of God’s love, and deceive many. To think that what we think of as light, is actually darkness is such a tragedy.  In fact, it is so tragic that Jesus comes on strong here.  His rebuke of the purveyors of false light is scathing. He doesn’t come after these teachers of religious law and Pharisees, for vengeance sake.  He’s coming on strong because he wants to rouse their hearts,  to open their blind eyes.  These are the passionate declarations of a Man who is full of love and is wanting desperately for all to see clearly the Light that has come into this dark world to set them free.  

Make sure that the light that you think you have is actually not darkness.  Keep your eye on Jesus – not yourself, not religion, your accomplishments, or titles.   Simply look to what He has done for you.  His light has come into your darkness and is making you new.    

If you are filled with light, with no dark corners, then your whole life will be radiant, (Lk 11:36 NLT).

Bring on the floodlights and let the radiance of God’s love fill you today.  Find His light and walk in it.
