The original question that prompted my series of posts about light was: “What would a ‘luminous’ life look like for you?” Lisa Nichols Hickman then listed six Bible verses for reflection. When I heard the question, the verse that first came to mind for me was 1 John 1:7:
But if we walk in the light as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.
I would say that luminous life is walked in the light, where we have fellowship with God and others and we can be assured that whatever causes us shame has been nailed to the cross. There’s never a reason to hide or lurk in the shadows. We are always welcome. We are always surrounded by love, light, and power.
