Let there be true light!

Wednesday, December 18, 2013

Photography is about letting light in. Capturing the picture without shadows, the emotions without distractions. Waiting for the sun to explode with the right hues, so that when you hear the click, the light will transform any darkness into beauty.

As a baby brought into light through birth, Earth was brought into birth through light. "Let there be light", echoed the command right in the beginning. There could be no life, beauty or birth without light. Earth had to be bathed with brightness before being shaped into art. 

Light exposed the beauty of creation as a spotlight announcing every new detail included. And it was good, very good. 

That is until darkness sneaked in. Until men chose darkness instead of light, thinking that light was not enough, or not convenient enough. As a result, the photos started to lose their beauty. With each click, a new stain of darkness showed up. It became almost impossible to capture light. 

On a dark night, around 2000 years ago, it was announced with great brightness that Light had come again into the world, this time true Light, the author of Creation. Light which gives light to every man coming into the world. The final solution to the stained pictures. 

Christmas lights brighten the darkness of winter, but only Christ can brighten the darkness of every human heart. 

Let there be true Light in your heart this Christmas.

"I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness but have the light of life." John 8:12
