Learning to illuminate with the love of Christ!


We often downplay the significance of how God wants to use our lives to display His glory, likely because we don’t realize how powerfully He shines through us.  Light is amazing in its simplicity and ability to change an environment and God works through our lives in the same way.  Just as light shines in the darkness of our lives, we glow with God’s glorious presence.


Isaiah 60:1

“Arise, shine for your light has come and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.”


I really love that this verse encourages us to stand up and show off God’s glory illuminating the world around us.  The word illuminate has some related words in the dictionary and one of them is dazzle.  For me the word dazzle perfectly depicts the thought behind the words ‘arise, shine.’ Dazzle means to shine brilliantly, to arouse admiration by an impressive display, and to overpower with light.  When something dazzles it has that extra sparkle that can’t be missed.  Not only does God’s glory illuminate our own lives, we get the enjoyment of having his glory shine through us and do the same for others.  So go ahead and dazzle your world with God’s glory! His light shining brilliantly through you will draw attention to Jesus and isn’t that what we want?
