Are you lit?
During the balloon festival in Canberra, I sat waiting before dawn to see if the hot air balloons would go up that morning. As the light began to creep into the sky, I could see the dark silhouettes of balloons tied to the ground. Suddenly one of them was lit up by the big gas burners they have inside, and you could see the beautiful colours and patterns. It was clear as it was supposed to be seen, illuminated by light. Soon enough it was heading off across the skies, lit by early morning sunlight, doing what it was made to do in all its glory.
We too are meant to be lit from within. God wants to make our lives shine with love and hope and waits to see if we will accept the Light that is Christ Jesus.
Lord help us to trust you with our lives today, that we may be lit up from within with your love.
