I love how the author of Hebrews describes what happens to us when we are born again. In Hebrews 10:32 it says, "After ye were ILLUMINATED." What a great word to describe our salvation. We are no longer in darkness; we have come into the light. We should no longer be victims of deception because we have come into truth. Our hearts and minds are illuminated and enlightened by the power of Christ.

The actual word is "photizo" and means "to shed rays, to shine, to brighten up." Let's walk in the fullness of what God has done in our lives. Allow God's rays of love and joy to shine through your face to your husband and children today. Brighten up your home with the light of God. Blow away the clouds of darkness--and shine!

Can you believe that this same word "photizo" is used of God lighting the whole of heaven (Revelation 21:23; 22:5). Surely we can light up our little homes with God's light that has shined into our hearts.

2 Corinthians 4:6 Knox says, "The same God who bade light shine out of darkness has kindled a light in our hearts, whose SHINING is to make known his glory as he has revealed it in the features of Jesus Christ." The word "shining" is "lampo" and means "to beam, to radiate brilliancy, to give light, to shine." We shouldn't be a little flickering light, but a beaming light which totally exposes the darkness and fills our home with God's love, light and joy.

Illuminate your home with God's light today.
