thought for the day – Epiphany day 3

2 Cor 4:6

For God who said ‘let light shine out of darkness’ made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. 

The wise men followed a star, for us to know God we need to follow Christ who reflects the light of God. Like the wise men, and the Israelites leaving Egypt God provides a light for us to follow. We are not left on our own in the darkness to stumble upon God if we are fortunate but given His light through His Son. 

As our 4 year old is often heard to say on a grey day when we mutter about the lack of sun, “that’s ok because we have God and He is the light of the world so we no longer need the sun or moon to see.”
