Luminaries – Wednesday, July 31st, 2019

Tonight, we will experience a rare cosmic event: a blue moon. With the weather cooperating in northern Illinois, we will be able to see with little difficulty this second full moon of the month of July. Two full moons in one month will not happen again for three years.

Of course, a blue moon isn’t really blue: The lunar orb will maintain its usual characteristics. It will shine in the reflected light of the sun, still be its normal yellow and white and will trace a path from horizon to horizon across the night sky.

Christians should be like a full moon shining in the world through the reflected light of the Son. We should be filled with the Holy Spirit so that our actions and words reflect the integrity and characteristics of Christ.

Jesus said, “Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds” (Matthew 5:16). When the Holy Spirit reflects Christ’s light through our lives, then we become His luminaries in this dark world. By the power of the Spirit, our light illuminates the darkness and shines on the cross so others will come to know the salvation of God.

When the light of the Lord is reflected in our lives, then the world will see the accomplishments of God in Christ bringing redemption and reconciliation to all mankind. Believers filled with the Holy Spirit light paths in this world so that others can see Christ and know the saving grace of God.
