The fountain of life

“For with you is the fountain of life; in your light do we see light.” (Psalm 36:9, ESV)

I start with his life, I see by his light.

Our God calls us find life in him. Not just with him, as if he is a partner in our lives. Not just for him as if all we need is proper motivation. Not by him as if he is a divine tool toward living a happy successful life.

In God is a fountain of life. Life has its strength and vitality in him. This fountain of life is the reason our Savior could promise his followers not just life, but abundant life. Life in our God is ceaseless, matchless and whole.

By myself, I merely contribute my own darkness to a dark world. Only in him do I see myself for who I am and his Gospel for what it is. Only in him can my cloudy eyes see.

Where we start so often determines where we end. This day I start in him, this evening may I be right where I started.
