Underhill: reflecting the light

Monday, June 15, 2015
    Feast of Evelyn Underhill, Mystical Writer, 1941
    [Jesus:] “You are the light of the world.”
    —Matthew 5:14 (NIV)
    Every Christian is, as it were, part of the dust-laden air which still radiates the glowing Epiphany of God, catch and reflect His golden Light. Ye are the light of the world—but only because you are enkindled, made radiant by the One Light of the World. And being kindled, we have got to get on with it, be useful.
    ... Evelyn Underhill (1875-1941), The Light of Christ, New York: Longmans, Green, 1949, p. 41-42 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 5:14; Isa. 9:2; Acts 2:3; Eph. 5:13-14; Phil. 2:14-15; 1 Thess. 5:5; 1 Pet. 2:9; 2 Pet. 1:19; 1 John 1:7
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, may Your light shine from us.
