When Something Grabs You

No, not literally, but mentally.

It's something you've heard before, but this time there is new meaning to it.

That happened to me last week when I was watching 'The Lake House' (again).

You know the scene where Alex is visiting his Dad, Simon, in hospital and they start dicussing a design that someone has given Simon to review?

Well, they start talking about how an architect must harness the light to best advantage. Then Simon says, "He must be captivated by the light. Always the light."

That's the line that grabbed my attention.

As a Christian, and from reading my Bible, I know that God is the Light. For us, life is worthless unless we are captivated by the Light (God). We must seek Him; learn about Him and from Him.

If you take it back to the architecture point of veiw, they were talking about how light has an effect on the building. We are called the "temple of the Holy Spirit" (1 Corinthians 6:19), and as such the Light has an effect on us. Those around us see the results of the Holy Spirit in our lives, and through us should also see the Light.

Just a thought ...
