goodness and holiness

God’s goodness and holiness is the light that sustains all of creation. Light is the source of life for everything both physical and spiritual. It is unfathomable, mysterious, and magnificent.

light is the nourishment for our being

the reason some people can’t ever forget grandma’s pancakes

For one thing, she usually made them on Saturday mornings. The scent of weekend adventures blended with fresh blueberries fried on a buttery pan will always make a deep impression. But, as wonderful as that is, it is not the reason we remember so fondly. It’s because while God was dividing light from dark and crafting the color spectrum–He was thinking, with great anticipation, of Grandma’s weekend pancake’s. The glory of the morning sunlight breaking through the trees, bird songs and forest critters already in full action–and human hands, the pinnacle of His creation, working the dough, working love into the hearts of her grandchildren.

think about such things–light, not dark

We’ll do best by filling our minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious–the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse… do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies. –Philippians 4:8-9 MSG

the inception of infinite praise and worship

Just as light is eternal, so is praise and worship. Our songs and poetry, our labors of love and earnest presentation will shine God’s gracious goodness and holiness infinitely into the universe. His glory will saturate an infinite creation. We have been invited to partake–beginning now.
