Reflection

We left Wichita Falls to begin our vacation. Dawn didn't burst forth until an hour after we drove off. The first fifty miles put us in rural North Texas. Dark. Deserted. Daunting.



In summer, construction crews work on nearly every highway in Texas. I'm sure of it. Because of the recent repairs, the highway we followed from Wichita Falls to Seymour had no center stripe. The thoroughness of the workers remembered to place reflectors along the middle of the road. With the extreme darkness of the country, those reflectors were our only guide to keep us on the right course.

Glass dome of Spencer Theatre in Alto, NM reflects the sun.


It got me to thinking. That's the way we Christians are supposed to be. As the world gets darker and more daunting, Christ needs us to be stronger and better reflectors of His light than ever before. How else will any of us know the right course? Christ shines His light into our souls, expecting us to reflect that light to those who don't know Him, and can't find their way in the darkness., so they can locate the right path.

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."

Are you a reflection for Christ?
