7/13/2022 - True (?) Colors
Ok, a piece of my reality just got blown up. Bluebirds are NOT blue. Whaaat? Neither are blue jays! Do my eyes deceive me? The answer is: yes. Here’s the deal, (without getting too scientific) bluebird feathers are made of tiny nano-pockets of air, smaller than a virus. So when light hits their wings all colors of the spectrum pass through except blue. When we see a bluebird we see blue being reflected. (Mind Blown!) So instead of being resentful of the deception and renaming them bubble-birds, I find myself in awe of a God who has so creatively colored our world. I still see blue. I also now see an awesome God. Apostle Paul writes to the Corinthians (2 Corinthians 4:4,6) the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. If God can project blue through nano-pockets of air imagine what He can project through a life made clean in Christ Jesus! Live in such a way to color your world with the love you’ve received in Jesus.
