A lesson from Frost

The past two mornings have been cold in Pietermaritzburg. Driving to school and work in the early mornings one has seen fields covered in frost. In a way it has been beautiful to see the first rays of sunlight reflecting of the frost - it is our version of a 'winter wonderland!'

But, here is the thing with frost - it looks white, but it is actually not! Frost crystals are translucent and so they scatter light in all different directions - this then gives the impression that the frost is white.

As a Christ-follower it is our role to scatter the 'Light' of Jesus in all different directions. When we do this Christ is exalted and glorified. People then notice how the 'Light' changes us.

Are you reflecting the Light of Jesus in your heart today?

  • Psalm 147:16 - "He spreads the snow like wool and scatters the frost like ashes."
  •  Job 38:29 -  "Who gives birth to the frost from the heavens?"
May you be touched by the grace of Jesus today.

Living in Grace
