This Little Light

photo by Dustin Maust

a stunned silence today
in the presence of Your light
like a mouth-gaping child at a firework finale
sitting in Daddy's lap
smiling at the warmth of darkness dispelled
and how it reached so much more
than this little light of mine . . .
Happy Easter, Abba

"God saw that the light was good, and He separated the light from the darkness."
Genesis 1:4

"Have you ever noticed that good news cannot walk? It just has to run." Mark Beeson, "Viral Moments" sermon Easter 2008

"It's not linear. It's viral. It's not one tells one. It's everyone tell everyone. It was not a slow-spreading announcement, the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It didn't travel one person to one more person. It was viral. Each person told everyone they knew. The Light caused ripple effects that impacted everyone and everything around it. All of history has been marked and changed by the resurrection of this One, the Light of the World, Jesus the Christ." Mark Waltz, "Easter: the Good News Gone Viral" post

"I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." John 8:12
