There is nothing like window light! A great softbox is a good start, but even the best ones are no match to His light. Seriously, does that surprise you? It doesn’t surprise me that mans best attempts fall incredibly short of whatever God decides to do. We know that “God so loved the world that he sent his only begotten Son” for each of us. That is an unbelievable and incomprehensible love!
I know that as I think about my son or my grandson’s that there is no way I would consider doing that. Proving once again that I would be a terrible god! I think most everyone will admit to the fact that they wouldn’t be a very good god, I guess what I don’t understand is why they can’t admit the need for a Savior. We know that all our righteousness is as filthy rags before a holy God, that is easy to understand. But as humans we don’t like to admit that we need help, or we just aren’t good enough to do it on our own.
So my prayer for you this holiday season and start of a new year is that you would admit that you just can’t do it yourself. You would ask the Almighty God of the universe to come into your heart and live there. Start your year off right by a real new beginning, new life in Christ! Not merely a “resolution,” or simply trying to break a bad (and often self destructive) habit. But a dying to yourself and experiencing total new life in Christ! If you have any questions on how to do this, I would be honored to talk with you about it. I did this in 1974 and it has totally changed the course of my life, but more importantly my eternity!
