The gentle light casts its colourful glow over the morning. The night after the blood moon.
The colours remind me of Jesus. They remind me of Jesus’ glory that is from the father. They warm, they fascinate, they cause people to wonder.
Jesus was the exact image of God the Father, and the rays of the sun warming the earth may be as close an analogy as we can get. The Father is the huge fiery sun, and Jesus is the light rays through which all life exists. We may be likened to the earth. The earth lives through the sun light, and through the fact that it is has an abundance of water. Jesus is the sun rays, the Holy Spirit is the water.
The Great Commission
16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had appointed for them. 17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted.
18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
Can you ever doubt that the sun’s rays can warm you. If you are cold, standing in the sun is a welcome gift. How can anyone ever doubt.
And yet the passage that said “and some doubted” didn’t really hit me till later. Some doubted Jesus, even when he had given them proof of his resurrection.
Do we doubt the Lord and because we have so little faith, we also doubt the power of God even though God’s power is endless. Does this doubt hold us back from what amazing things God wants us to do.
Dear Lord, help me not to doubt, but to pray strong fearless prayers for your glory to come down to this earth and work wonders.
