When most people think of the moon, they think of the night time. On it's own, the moon has no light. Although it lights up the sky at night, it is not shining on it's own, it's reflecting. The moon is reflecting the light from the Sun. We who are called of Christ are the same.
We have no light and no power on our own. Instead we get what we need from the Son as well which is Jesus Christ. It is through Him that we are then able to shine our light on the dark world and help others to find our way. Every now and then, the earth comes between the sun and moon and the moon has no light. But as it keeps moving, it is able to catch hold of the sun's rays so it can keep on reflecting. We are like that as well. We let things and sometimes the people of this world get in the way of us and God. For a moment, we get off track and darkness takes over.
No matter who you are, or how long you have followed God, your focus has shifted at one point or another. But understand that as long as you are alive, you have a chance, to keep moving like the moon, and to get back on track. We all have been called to be moons. We are here to reflect the love, the peace, the joy, the hope, and the salvation of Christ unto this dark and evil world. We are here to help others know, there is a better way, and there is more than what this world offers. Never stop seeking God. Never stop following Him. Never stop reading His word. Let your light shine no matter what others say about you. If they talked about Jesus, know they will talk about you. But take comfort in knowing the Lord will redeem you. He will bless you and give you a reward for doing His will. Be blessed. Q
