I Love You to the Moon and Back.

Yesterday, Jane and I were in a shop in one of our favorite places in the world, Black Mountain, NC.   I saw a metal art piece that had a crescent moon and cut out words that said, "I love you to the moon and back."   Many of you may not know that my wife Jane's maiden name is Moon.  So I am always on the lookout for little what nots that have the moon referenced in some form or fashion.

 

Later that night, though not full, the moon was very bright.   I began to think about how the moon lit up the night,  though it actually produces no light on it's own.  It is entirely reflected light.  I remember as a kid, how I would take my telescope and focus in on the moon, fascinated by it's detail and luminescence.

 

We as Christians are to be like that.  Paul writes, in 2 Corinthians 3:18 "we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lords glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit."  

 

Spend some time with the Father.   Get a long, clear unobstructed view of His majesty, love and transcendence and you will radiate the glory of Christ in your life.

 

Until the Whole World Hears,
