light

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light”

It sounds dramatic.

The earth, which was once formless and empty, is now full of light.  Light that guides and provides a path.  God even reminds the Hebrew people that he has placed a light with in them; they are supposed to be the light to the nations.

Now a man born blind is asking Jesus to be healed.  Imagine being blind from birth, seeing nothing but total darkness.  Jesus spit on the ground, made mud and put it on the man’s eyes.  He asked him to go wash in the Pool of Siloam and remarkably, he could see for the very first time.

Now imagine it, all you’ve known is darkness and you open your eyes, pupils dilated from darkness, only to see a flood of light coming into your eyes.  Imagine hearing the words of Jesus, “I am the light of the world.”

Today, just think about how remarkable that would be.
