THE GREAT LIGHT
The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death upon them a light was shined.
We use cameras to capture our precious memories, baby's first smile or our long awaited trip to the Grand Canyon. Looking at a picture of the Grand Canyon is nothing like standing at the brink of it, but the picture can transport our imaginations back to that moment Sometimes we forget our five senses and imagination to Scripture. If we slow down, the word pictures and stories in the Gospels can come to life. We imagine the smell of over turned soil and the warm sun on the back of a farmer's neck as he scatters handfuls of seed. Which seed will grow? Which seed am I? The sudden stillness in the disciples' ears after Jesus calms the chaotic storm they thought would claim their lives. Where was their faith?
In their journey with Jesus, the disciples encountered darkness, desperation, disease, and even death. Jesus stands victorious at the end of each of these encounters. His power, kindness, and compassion defeat darkness. He brings light and makes a way even when all seems lost.
