Our church recently began to have two Sunday morning worship services. The early service starts at 9:00am. I had not preached at that time of day before, and it was interesting to notice how brightly the sunlight shines through the huge windows at the early service. I feel like I am under a spot light when the sun is shining brightly.
This past Sunday, my wife came up to me between services and suggested that I change clothes before the second service. In the bright light, she noticed that both my pants and shirt had spots on them that might have previously gone unnoticed. So I went home and changed. I will have to be more careful how I present myself now that the light is better in the church building.
People who live in spiritual darkness are afraid to come into the light because of what it might show about them. John 3:20-21 says, “Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.”
