The other day I was sitting in our living room talking with Christy. Suddenly she smiled and said, “The sun light is reflecting through your hair and it looks like you have a halo.” I must have looked at her strangely as she stood up and took this picture to show me.
I have never considered myself a halo person, horns perhaps, but not a halo. Yet the light of the sun reflected through my grey hair and it looked like I had a halo. When I moved out of the sunlight, my halo disappeared.
The halo did not come from me, it came from the light reflecting through me. If I stayed sitting in the light I would continue to have the halo. Then God whispered in my ear, “This is how I often work. If you sit in the light of my Son, you too may have a halo.”
I like the idea of having a halo, it makes me feel holy, but what does it mean to sit in the Son? How do we get and stay in the light? Well we know the adage, “It is all about location.”
Sitting in the light of the Son is all about location. This truth is evident in the place we are at physically. Are we putting ourselves where we can connect with God and grow in our relationship with God?
Are we frequently in places of worship? Are we participating in a bible study regularly? If we are, then we have the potential to glow with God’s light.
Sitting in the light of the Son is all about location. This truth is also evident in how we allow God a place in our hearts, for us to experience God’s love and be empowered to love others. Are we opening our hearts to allow God in, and are we willing to share that love with others?
Are we open to loving people unconditionally as God loves us unconditionally? Are we open to forgive others as God forgives us? If we are, then we have the potential to glow with God’s light.
Sitting in the light of the Son is all about location. This truth is evident in the place we are at in our service to Christ. Are we open to serve and sacrifice for God as Christ has done for us?
Are we open to serve God faithfully? Are we taking advantage of service opportunities on a regular basis? If we are, then we have the potential to glow with God’s light.
I won’t ask if we are wearing a halo or horns right now, but believe me, those around us already know. I hope to see us all sitting in the light of the Son. Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!
I will see you in church. Remember, God loves us more than we can ever imagine, and I love you too!
