The night sky is filled with light. Filled with it!

I’m not talking about the moon or stars or planets or milky way. I’m talking about blazing, powerful light. But we cannot see this powerful light because there is nothing to reflect it.

Think of it. All of the sunlight from the brightest summer day to the whitest winter snow is contained in the evening sky. But it’s just passing through until it hits the Moon or Venus or the earth’s atmosphere.

Until then we are in the shadows, hidden from the sun and blind to the powerful light racing through the vast space above.

But now we know it’s there – light, unhampered by the darkness, it’s power and beauty undiminished by it.

In truth, the darkness we fear, which seems so solid and forbidding, is really nothing. The light takes no notice of it at all. It simply races on until it finds something with enough substance to reflect it’s glory.

In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
John 1:4
