Over the Rainbow

A lot of the Spirit lead insight I get from reading the Bible speaks to the artist in me. I can't help it, I think God the creator and I look at all His handy work and I think  Alpha, Omega, Ultimate Artist Extraordinaire.

One of the first artistic insights I received is the rainbow first seen in Genesis. The beautiful light
show a little rain and sunlight can produce is amazing to me. What's even more amazing, is  all those colors we see broken up , refracted and reflected into red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple are what make up the natural wavelength of light. Even when we can't see it, that full spectrum of light is always there.

Pastor Eric spoke of denominational in fighting, and it reminded me of an idea I've been holding onto for a while now. We are all supposed to be instruments of God's light here on Earth. Shinning bright for all the world to see, giving glory to God and leading people to the Lord. But, currently, sadly there are exaggerated issues dividing us. We're all broken up, refracted and reflecting,  instead of being united in the body of Christ we're trying to outshine one another for authority over God's word. That full spectrum of wonderful light is always there, whether we see it or not. It is only when everything is in harmony that all those colors slip into each other and work seamlessly together as one light.

  1. Interesting image. The rainbow would be less beautiful if it were all one color (even if that color was your favorite).

    1. individually we can be colorful with our expression toward God, but in the end our denominations are part of the full spectrum of God's light. Be it a fiery Baptist red, or a royal Methodists purple it's all the same light.

  2. Another great analogy, Dave. You're really good at this! As beautiful as the rainbow is, how much more brilliant would we be if all the different denominations joined together in the brightness of the Lord.
