sunday, july 31

I was reading the other day and came across this quote :heartbeat:

''Sacred delight is good news coming through the back door of your heart.'' To me it is the light and the joy within that never really goes out...there is nothing like a heavenly light in a dark place :heartbeat:

''You are the light that gives light to the world.
A city thta is built on a hill cannnot be hidden.
And people don't hide a light under a bowl.
They put it on a lampstand so the light shines for all
the people in the house. In the same way, you should be
a light for other people. Live so that they will see the good
things you do and will praise your Father in heaven.''
Matthew 5: 14-16

''The work must continue until we are all joined
together in the same faith and in the same knowledge of the
Son of God. We must become like Christ and have his perfection.''
Ephesians 4:13

''Anyone who speaks should speak words from God.
Anyone who serves should serve with the strength
God gives so that in everything God will be
praised through Jesus Christ. Power and glory
belong to him forever and ever.'' 1 Peter 4:11 :heartbeat:

have a wonderful evening friends--2 days of intense thunder and
lightening storms here and still pouring--summer fun :grouphug:

i used to think that, as christians, we were reflectors of the light emanating from god through christ.

but, now i believe that since the scriptures tell us both god and christ take up residence within us -- dwell within us -- we are radiators of their divine light since they are truly within us.

of course god and christ will always be the primary sources of the light. but we can (and do) become secondary sources. at least that's what i think.

thanks wolfie. :giverose:

Above all things, have INTENSE Love for one another.--1 Peter 4:8.

Sanctify the Christ as Lord in your hearts. ... Hold a good conscience.--1 Peter 3:15, 16.

TRUTH IS SIMPLE.

Wolfie,

Do you happen to recall who penned: ''Sacred delight is good news coming through the back door of your heart.'' I kinda like it . . .

Isomam,

Loved your thought and am in agreement. We are more like radiators!

Hi Iso and Beginagain--thank you both for your comments and support of the daily text :heartbeat:

This quote is by Max Lucado and he does alot of spiritual writings. I don't have much of his thoughts or any of his books but I did come across that one just randomly--I liked it because it expressed a ''spiritual delight'' as a surprise--coming in the ''backdoor'' as it were-I thought that expressed the thought perfectly-- :heartbeat:
