Out of the Darkness

October 14, 2010

The whole world has watched as the thirty-three miners in Chile have waited for rescue.  The waiting is over, and the celebration has begun, as all thirty-three have safely been extracted from the mine.  Now they will have to reenter society and somehow adjust to their new lives.  They will never be the same.

I see parallels to the Christian mission.  There are many people who are trapped in the darkness.  There is only one way out.  That way is straight and narrow.  That way is Jesus.  When people do come out of the darkness, all the angels in heaven rejoice.  We should rejoice with them.  Their lives will never be the same.  They will need encouragement and support as they begin their new lives.

They have come out of darkness, into the light.
