The human eye can only respond to color when a light source is present.
No light = colorless world.
No Light = colorless life.
Light of the World,
You stepped down into darkness,
and You opened the eyes of the color-blind.
You color life into souls, onto hearts.
You paint love in shades of goldenrod and green,
coral and crimson,
amethyst and amber.
We are not a gray, colorless people. Because You — chief resident of our hearts — are not a gray and colorless God.
All the world’s a crayon box, a string of Christmas lights, a bowl of berries, a painter’s palette.
And we — the works of art — are the designer pieces. We bear the image of the Artist, and we bring His color to the ends of the Earth.
Go ahead, show off your colors. They are God’s gift to you, and your gift to a planet in need.
“You’re here to be light, bringing out the God–colors in the world…”
— Matthew 5:14 (MSG)

Beautiful. Love it!
Thank you, Sarah. Have a fantastic weekend, letting your God-colors show.
Oh this is so wonderful, Jennifer, how you wove in truth with that beautiful colorful tree…thanks for sharing your God-colors with us…Love it!
What a wonderful way to look at this. His light makes all the difference in our world.
Hi Jennifer, I popped over from Blue Cotton Memory today. I love your site and this post. As a Jesus follower I don’t believe on coincidence. He kind of guided me to click on your button there. My post yesterday was Matthew 5:13 also The Message version. If you get a chance…
Again so glad I found you.
love this! God’s paintbrush it truly one of a kind!
You color our world with so much beauty through your words and images.
Amen. And imagine if there’s a whole OTHER spectrum of colors just waiting on the other side for us to see!
One of my favorite Message verses.
Love the color of you.
So true. So true. What a thought tho. God is light and without Him there is no color. What a thought.
Oh, mama, you NAILED this one. Gorgeous, through and through. Thanks so much.
Oh wow. This was BEAUTIFUL. We have that SAME ceramic tree in our bedroom, my husbands from his childhood… I love Christ all woven in this post…. Thank you for this.
I am remembering a photo taken in Texas last September, capturing beautiful hands with perfectly-applied purple nail polish.
And the remembering makes me smile.
I love the thought that it’s the light that brings out the colors. Of course, I knew that – but you made it real.
I love color. My Mom would tell you that the more color in something, the more I’d fall in love with it.
There is something about bursts of color that just makes me happy. This must be the reason why. We had one of those ceramic trees when my kids were growing up. Must find it in the attic! 🙂
you have reminded me to look for colour even when everything appears drab and grey, and it is very grey here in the UK at the moment. I’ll be looking out for those little spots of colour and thanking God X
Such a vivid post. Love your take on the color theme.
