It takes an intense fireball of light to warm our planet.  That fireball is so intense that we cannot look at it directly for any length of time, or our vision will be burned out.  I snapped a picture of the sun by letting the camera do the looking.  And then I saw that even the camera couldn't handle the intensity...the light was broken into small blobs of color as the receptors in the camera went into overload.  The mild and pleasant weather we are now having isn't here because the calendar says "May" at the top.  It's here because God has set up a sophisticated regulation mechanism to harness the intense light of the sun in conjunction with our distance and our angle to it.  God is an intense light, Himself.  We cannot look at Him directly but we can be warmed by His presence.  As the sun floods the earth with light and warmth, so God floods us personally with the light of truth and the warmth of His embrace.  To truly live, we need an intense light...a very intense light!
Psalm 19:4-6 (The Message translation) God makes a huge dome for the sun-a superdome!  The morning sun's a new husband leaping from his honeymoon bed, The daybreaking sun an athlete racing to the tape.  That's how God's Word vaults across the skies from sunrise to sunset, Melting ice, scorching deserts, warming hearts to faith.
