The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp.(Revelation 21:23).
While I was getting my yearly health check up, I have been diagnosed with Vitamin-D deficiency. Vitamin-D is an important vitamin for our body which helps in absorption of calcium which makes our bones strong. The best source of Vitamin-D turns out to be the sun. So I was told to be in the sun everyday so that my bones do not become weak. No matter how many or how much supplements I take it doesn’t equal to being in the sun and letting my Body produce vitamin-D. Although we take our supplements it is recommended that sun is the best source of our Vitamin-D. While soaking up the sun I realized how much similar the spiritual being is to the physical being, the sun being our eternal God whose glory glows like the sun (At the transfiguration of Jesus, His face shone like the sun (Matthew 17:2)). We too become weak spiritually if we do not get the daily dose of our Spiritual Sun(God).
How often do we seek the comforts of our home and do not go out and seek the sun as it out of our comfort zone. How often do we get so busy in our own lives that we forget to soak up the sun on a beautiful day. How often do we reflect that having such a source of eternal light in our lives is gift that is always a constant. We have taken the sun granted without even realizing it.
If you feel that you have done all/any of that, today is the day God who is faithful (God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord (1 Corinthians 1:9)) is waiting for you to seek him more intimately.
Though we are in darkness we know that the sun((Jesus) is shining waiting for us to come to light. (And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.(John 1:5)) So, let us not forget to get our daily dose of Vitamin-D for our souls by sitting with Lord in his presence.
