What a glorious spring morning!
1st Mar 2021What a glorious spring morning! Blue skies, bright sunshine, even some warmth in the sun’s rays, and plenty of excited birdsong filling the air. After the gloomy, dark, dreary days of winter, what a tonic to lift the spirits and bring a smile to our faces! In every garden, bulbs are popping through, if not already in full bloom, blossom is starting to open on the trees and buds are fattening on plants. Spring is such an exciting time of year giving us great expectancy and hope in the potential of the year ahead, perhaps even more so this year! We seem inexplicably drawn to the brightness and light of the sun and its effects on the earth. Could it have something to do with the way God made us? We are told in 1 John 1:5 ‘God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.’ (NIV) And God wants to build a relationship with those who revere Him, those who are drawn to His light. When Jesus, God’s son, who is described as ‘the light of the world’, started his ministry, people were drawn to him, expectant and excited believing he brought them hope. And they were right! Jesus said ‘…Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.’ John 8:12 (NIV). The Bible tells us of exciting times to come which we can share in if we choose to follow ‘the light of the world’ now. We may only experience beautiful spring mornings occasionally, but they can act as a reminder of a time when ‘there will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light.’ Rev 22:5 (NIV) What a time to look forward to and be ready for! pershore.bible pershore-christadelphians.org
