wrong direction

Tuesday May 7th, Revelation 22: The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. 4 They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. 5 There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever. Darkness can be a time of chaos in our lives and often in scripture is a symbol of chaos.  In the vision of God’s kingdom come down to earth, there is no night, there is no chaos.  There is only wholeness, health, and healing for those in need which includes all of us.  It’s an idyllic vision I know, and not a place of serenity we can ever hope to obtain in our time and in our part of the kingdom in this world.  We can however get a whole lot closer than we are now, and indeed we are called to move in that direction.  How we do that starts in our hearts, knowing God loves us, and moves outward knowing God loves others and calls us to do the same, remembering that love is a verb not a feeling.  It helps if you are standing in the light of Christ in the first place, otherwise, we sometimes head in the wrong direction.
