The Light in the Darkness

Over the passed couple days, I’ve been completely immersed in a new release from one of my favorite Christian authors. Here is my favorite quote from the book so far:

“You know, I think the best thing I learned this year was when I helped to put the strings of lights around the palm tress on upper campus… What I learned was that light transforms darkness. The first time we hit that On switch, I couldn’t believe how much difference a little touch of light made in the middle of all that darkness. We’re all a bunch of small light bulbs, you know? We just hang there, and when God’s power comes on, it’s amazing. The darkness is transformed. Especially when we stay connected to each other.” –Eli Lorenzo, “Coming Attractions”

When Eli finishes his declaration, the antagonist, Katie, begins to ponder, “Could it be that simple? We just stay connected, and God is that one who flips On switch with all the power?”

You know, I do believe that it can be that simple. In Psalms 119:105 it says, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.” All we have to do is stay connected to God and he’ll show us the way. And I hope and pray that iHeart accomplishes what was written in those last two sentences: “The darkness is transformed. Especially when we stay connected to each other.”

“There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”-Galatians 3:28

God bless!
