SOLAR    ECLIPSE                          Submitted by:   Merilee Ottoson

 A pastor, who is a friend of ours, recently gave a sermon about the solar eclipse. I didn’t hear the message, but it sounded like a great topic!! He said that he wondered if we sometimes experience an eclipse of the “Son”.

Eclipse means to obscure the light of an object by bringing something into our vision that covers it. Yes, we know all about that! Just over a week ago our closest star, the sun, was eclipsed by the moon. Of course, it didn’t last very long-----really just a few minutes in some locations.

Has that ever happened to you? Has something or someone in your life eclipsed the Son…I mean Jesus. At times we allow things to “crowd out” the light of Jesus. Our circumstances, our problems and our own weaknesses can cause us to not see the LIGHT that is Jesus. 

I John 1:5 “God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.” The solar eclipse caused darkness. However, there is NO darkness in God. NONE! There CANNOT be darkness in God---that’s right. There CANNOT be darkness in God because HE IS LIGHT. What place does light have with darkness? They can’t exist together….it is impossible.

Perhaps you are living in a “hole of darkness” right now. Or maybe you know someone who is trying to live their life without the Light. Be assured! He is there…..the Son is still there. Though there is certainly darkness all around us, Christ is Light!

 “Dear Father, please help us to know that your Presence is always good and filled with Light. We ask that You will keep us so that we do not allow anything to eclipse You.”
