Have you ever looked up into the night sky and observed the splendor of a full moon? The glow of the moon can light up the darkest of nights. There is something about the full moon that makes you look up. Yet, have you ever really thought about the moon?
1.The Moon Has No Light
Despite all the splendor of the sight, the moon really has no light. It is nothing more than a big rock circling the earth. It is just a large mirror of the light provided by the sun. The sun is providing all that glorious light. Without the sun’s continual presence, the moon would be useless to give any light to the world.
2. The Moon Is Not Earth
The moon is definitely in this world. There is no doubt about that. You can even catch a glimpse of it during the day. Still, it remains separate from the earth.
It is a completely independent body with its own atmosphere, surface, and orbit. What happens here does not directly affect the moon. If someone creates a hole on earth, it doesn’t cause one on the moon. They remain independent of one another
I want to use the two principles above to illustrate how we as Christians can influence our world.
3. You Have No Light
You too have no real light. Compared to the Glory of Christ, anything you could boast of doing is futile. You should focus on the light of God and shine into the darkness of the world. You should strive to exalt Christ in everything you do. Do everything as to God to bring Him all the glory.
4. You Are Not of this World
You create influence by staying in this world. You do not need become part of this world while staying here. You do this be staying true to your convictions while not being condescending of others. Be true to you and let God change the heart and actions of others.
Are you a full moon Christian? How would that look in your life?
