Starting Somewhere

Hey, guys and gals!

In computer programmer culture, when you learn a new language, the first thing you're supposed to do is write a program that puts "Hello World" on the screen.  I never could settle for that.  Thus, you've got "Hey, guys and gals!"

I'm not going to start this blog with a long, thought-provoking post, simply because I don't have one.  But I'll leave you with this:

God is light - there's no darkness in Him.  No shady character, no hidden fees, no dark alley deals.  His "Yes" is Yes, and everything He ever promised, He made good through Jesus Christ.  Yes, there's no darkness in Him - that means no shadows where we can hide from ourselves.  What can we do other than to let Him get rid of our darkness, and let our "yes" be yes?

Yes, Father.

As this is the first real-life post, I'm testing out the comment engine.
That's all.

I'll be the second to test out your comments. :)

Your blog said that God is light.  In John 1, it mentions that Jesus is the true light, which coming into the world, enlightens every person.  But Jesus is also truth (which I think is the flip side of the coin from light).  In the world, you hear a lot of truth-claims, but many of them have falsehood imbedded in them--for instance, a convenience store poster advertising a smokeless tobacco said in bold letters, "Be free!" while underneath, in smaller letters, was "This product has been determined by the Surgeon General to be addictive."  Go figure!  The ad wanted us to say "Yes" to the purchase, but seeing through the lie undermines our faith in the product and we say, "No!"  Real faith, which yields the fruit of good works, is knowing that Jesus' claims are true, and trusting those claims allows us to say, "Yes!" to Him.
