Blocking the Sun

Like millions of other residents of the United States, my wife and I drove quite a distance to get the best view possible of the total solar eclipse that took place on Monday, August 21. It was well worth the time and effort. The event was one of the most spectacular things I have ever witnessed. When the moon completely blocked the sun’s light, it became quite dark. Crickets began to chirp. Night lights came on. It was amazing!

It reminded me of what happens when the light of the Son, Jesus Christ, is not seen by humans. When lack of faith prevents the light from being discerned, darkness prevails. If Jesus is not allowed to shine, then sin becomes dominant, and people suffer greatly.

Let us see to it that nothing blocks the Son!

“The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.”—John 1:9-12.
