Room with a view

This morning is my last in Vinnytsia for this trip, the last two nights I’ve been in an apartment with a view. At sunset…

In the morning…

In each case it is the light that makes the difference. Wether it be the multi colored sunset or the ever brightening sunrise.

The Orthodox church buildings are dominant in these pictures. Two observations about these buildings: First, that the golden aspects capture and reflect* the sun so as to reflect its brightness. This is a reminder that as disciples of Jesus, we should reflect Him to those around us. Secondly, the proximity of the buildings (especially the background on the hill) in the middle of city reminds us that our place is among the people. (Think of Paul in the marketplace.)

May we reflect the light through love that cares, acts and speaks truth.

“Whoever loves his brother abides in the light, and in him there is no cause for stumbling.” (1 John‬ ‭2:10‬ ‭ESV‬‬)

It’s in abiding in Him that we may best reflect His light!

What are the ways we may reflect the light among the people? How do our lives make them curious about the God we worship?
