We are merely moons…

He is the radiance of the glory of God the exact imprint of His nature, and He upholds the universe by the word of his Power. After making purification for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on High,
Hebrews 1:3(ESV)

Finally finished mulching the front this morning. It was cool (welcome Fall), but clear and beautiful. The sun warmed me as I worked, gospel playing in my ear. I began to think about all we try to do on our own, failing to offer every moment, every movement to God in advance. We plan. We move forward. We are confident that what we desire will come to us if we work hard. Where is God?

It occurred to me that we are merely moons. Matthew Henry’s commentary on Hebrews 1:3 explains the relationship of the Father to the Son.

In beholding the power, wisdom, and goodness of the Lord Jesus Christ, we behold the power, wisdom, and goodness of the Father, (John 14:7); the fullness of the Godhead dwells, not typically, or in a figure, but really, in Him.
Like the moon reflecting the sun,
Lord let me shine in the light of Your Glory

We are merely moons, and as such, derive our light, our energy from a place beyond ourselves. We have no light, no warmth, except by Grace.

When I found my right place, I needed to find the words to make my declaration.

Like the moon reflecting the sun, Lord let me shine in the light of Your Glory

Where is God? He goes before us that we might reflect His Light. So, in finding and learning to live in my right place, I am fasting my independence. I am fasting any notion that I have my own light. I am merely a moon; He is the radiance of the Glory of God, and I will chase the Light.

On Mondays, I pray and play with friends here...
