You're here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. -- Matthew 5:14, The Message.When people look at us, will they see Christ?
Mirrors (even if a little cracked)
In tomorrow's lessons, John the Baptizer makes clear that he's not the light, just a mirror. That doesn't minimize its brightness, it just locates the source at the appropriate point -- the Christ. Isaiah's proclamation of good news for the poor is another prism that makes the "God-colors" in the world visible for all to see, even though we'd never perceive it by our own unassisted vision. You and I are lenses and mirrors as well -- imperfect, but polished by our maker to reflect and refract God's frequencies to others can perceive them.
