My children play a game they call “The Amazing Darkness.” We enter the room, close the door, turn off the lights, then dance around with a flashlight. My role in the game is to gasp, “Ooh, ahh! How amazing.” They love it.
Amazing darkness is an oxymoron. Nothing about darkness is amazing. But that’s just it. Light makes darkness amazing.
John 1:5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.
Today you will encounter people living in darkness. A child. Your neighbour. Work colleague. Friend. And to them it is normal; this horrible, stifling pain. Life is unamazing darkness.
She bumps into you. And for a few minutes, life is amazing. For a moment, she feels the warmth and pleasure of light. She tastes possibility. The possibility of Light to disperse darkness forever. The possibility of Jesus. That is the kind of impact you can have. You make her darkness amazing.
Life is an opportunity. An opportunity to shine your light. To make someone’s darkness amazing. Don’t let this time pass you by. Go shine your light in the darkness. Radiate the captivating light of you and make the darkness amazing.
