Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.
November 13, 2016, the supermoon, not seen this close since 1948 and not to be seen again this close until 2034. Sure there are regular supermoons but not as close as these. But just exactly what is the moon? It has no light of its own, but merely a reflection of the sun. Its light is seen in phases and sometimes not at all. So what does that have to do with us?
We as Christians are to be a reflection of Jesus Christ. He is the Light that should shine through us. Sometimes we do a better job of letting our lights shine that at others. Sometimes it seems our lights are almost out. Satan has always tried to destroy God's people. Persecution through the ages has put a damper on our lights. Our lax attitudes also dim our lights.
There is nothing in creation that doesn't have a purpose of praise. Creation is also filled with examples of study for us to know how to be better reflections of our Lord.
As the supermoon praises God in the heavens, close, very close to us this weekend, may we also purpose to praise Him by drawing up close to Him, purposing to reflect His light in a super way.
November is a great month for sky watching. The supermoon this weekend is just a beginning. November is always a great month to view star showers.
So grab your binoculars, star maps and a warm jacket and head outside for the show.
How can the things you see in the night skies help you be a better reflection of Jesus?
