I love to gaze up at the moon. I think it's such a wonderful, beautiful, and mysterious creation of God: a non-light reflecting a light to become a light. I think Ephesians 5:13 does a much better job of explaining this concept: "But everything exposed by the light becomes visible--and everything that is illuminated becomes a light."
Now, I realize that this particular verse in context isn't really referring to the moon, but I still think it can be applied. When the dark moon is exposed by the sun's light, it becomes visible, and in turn becomes a light to slightly brighten night.
It's like the moon is a visible word picture of how we should live as Christians. I just love that! We don't produce our own light, but we should be reflecting the light of Jesus to this dark world in which we live. When we are exposed by the Son's light, we become little lights to also brighten night.
