We know it is impossible to live on earth without sun, as the whole life depends on the photosynthesis-the process through which plants and certain other organisms collect food for their life, using light as energy source..these plants later become food for other animals… without sun it would be impossible for the living beings to be on earth….in this case, we have to understand the reason why the ancient people worshiped sun…the sun being the symbol of warmth, and symbol of energy.
Without sun, it would be impossible for us to live on earth as we would be freeze in the cold…. like way, on the dark side of the moon and other places in space that are shielded from the sun’s rays, where temperatures are hundreds of degree below zero. Sun’s gravitational pull also keeps earth in its orbit. It keeps the whole world on right track.
So we have to understand the use of sun in broad way, it gives warmth, gives light, produce food, and provides the gravitational pull needed to keep Earth in orbit….. If the sun has so much power, how powerful would be our heavenly father who created the universe, planets and everything which we could see with our eyes and others that cannot be seen with our eyes.
God The Sun, We His Reflections
God’s physical creation illustrates spiritual truths. He wants us to understand him through these natural bodies. Sun, moon, stars, planets, and earth everything was created to understand him better. God is Spirit as the sun light can only be felt, God can also only be felt we could not see him with our eyes. Bible says that, he is light (John 4:24; 1 John 1:5)….Sometimes we are not able to bear the natural energy, because of its power, in that case, how powerful would be “thy” spiritual energy.
Just imagine a situation without sun, we would totally be in darkness, even the shining of moon depend on the brightness of sun, as the moon cannot shine by itself. In the same way, a man without God would be in total darkness, because the spiritual light in him does not shine.
Without the rays of sun, we would freeze….if we are not guided by the spiritual ray we too will be freeze into spiritual coldness. Without the Sun’s rays, there would be no food, and without the Lord to feed us spiritually, our spirits would die of hunger. Finally, without the Sun’s gravitational pull, instead of staying in its well-planned orbit, Earth would go wandering off through space and probably crash into some other astral body eventually. Without God’s guidance, His gravitational pull on us in the spiritual world, we too would certainly get out of the well-planned orbit of His will-our proper spiritual orbit-and we’d go wandering off into the darkness of spiritual space and probably crack up somewhere.
When we stay astray from the light we will be out of orbit, having no direction, no guidance-lost in space! That’s what people who don’t have the Lord are like: They’re lost in spiritual space, spiritual darkness. Cold, hungry people are wandering around in darkness without God, just as Earth would be without the Sun.
God even calls the wayward angels, the rebellious angels and spiritual powers of the Devil “wandering stars” (Jude 6, 13). They’ve tried to run away from His control. They’ve left their center and gotten out of orbit. In their rebellion, they’re wandering off, lost in space!
That has the most horrible sound to it-”lost in space”-wandering off through the vast darkness of space, so alone! It’s just like people without the Lord-freezing, starving, blind, and lost.
Let His Light Shine
It would be great to understand God as our sun and we are His moon. We just only reflect his light to our surroundings. And when should we reflect His light the most? When does the Moon shine brightest? At night, when the Sun is out of sight, as the world slips deeper and deeper into spiritual darkness, so we must keep on shining and lighting the world with His reflected light.
We are also like the Sun’s rays. Each of us who has received Jesus as our Savior is like a sunbeam, a little ray of sunshine coming from the Lord. Each of us has become part of His light and part of His power, spiritually.
The Bible tells us that God is also love (1 John 4:8). Love is the power and light of God. So when you give God’s love to people, you’re showing them His light. God’s Spirit of love and power and light will lead you to those who especially need your loving help and who will respond in loving appreciation, just as it will also lead them to you.
Have you got God’s love light? You do if you have Him! Jesus is the ultimate expression of God’s love, and if you have Jesus, you have God’s love light too!
