Soaking in Sunshine

If we are born again, the Light of God’s Word has penetrated the darkness of spiritual death in our inner beings (our hearts) bringing Life and illumination within. Continued exposure to Scripture brings more Light. However, we walk in the darkened world of lost people. This darkness of a fallen world can be depressing. Physical darkness over long periods of time can be depressing. What a joy when sunshine returns! Spiritually, we need sunshine and God gives it and it radiates from brothers and sisters in Christ. When we add Spiritual sunshine to and draw Spiritual sunshine from Godly Christians, great joy is experienced. We enjoy Spiritual warmth and health. In Proverbs 4:18, we are told: “But the path of the just (is) as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.” Colossians 3:16 adds: “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.” Anna B. Russell, gave us a song entitled, “Be a Ray of Sunshine,” in which she wrote of how Christians can be a blessing to others: “Be a ray of sunshine everywhere you go, shining for the Savior with a steady glow; bringing smiles to sad ones, wiping tears away, make yourself a blessing every passing day. Be a ray of sunshine everywhere you go; comfort bring to others, stoop to raise the low; kind words cost but little, smiles bring pleasures, too; they may lift a burden; let them not be few. Be a ray of sunshine everywhere you go; cheerfulness is needed, this you can bestow; help to chase the shadows from this world away, bringing joy and gladness like a shining ray. Be a ray of sunshine everywhere you go; stars will shine the brighter in your crown, I know; sunshine brought to others will reflect on you,  Heav’n will be the sweeter—keep the end in view. Be a ray of sunshine everywhere you go, shining for the Savior with a steady glow; be a ray of sunshine filled with Heaven’s light, sending forth a message beautiful and bright.” Selah! You can, if you will, lavish others with the sunshine of God’s blessings!    Ron
