Doxa: Greek 1391 – The Glory.
The Glory comes from the beauty of His Doxa that shines from within you,
A light that is not external but shines from the heart of a believer,
A light reflecting the True Light of the world. A light that show others the way home.
The light attracts all who see it, like bugs to a bulb, but is only understood by those who carry the same light.
It is not an attraction to nice clothing, or money given or a gathering for hospitality in our homes.
We shine His Doxa, His Glory because He lives in our hearts, changing our reasoning, our motives, and our passions. His Glory is what shines through us to the world. It is the reason we care for our bodies, and give to the church or to a beggar on the street, or open our doors wide, inviting others to come to coffee.
We are the moon, all broken and scared, reflecting the perfect light of His Son. We are a mirror partially reflecting the light coming through a window. We are the creation reflecting the Creator.
“Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” Matt 5:16
