Be The Light!

Be the Light!

With the world becoming increasingly darker, as Christians we are called to be the light.

In Matthew 5: 14-16 Jesus tells us, Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

So, how do you become the light to someone in need?

Pray and ask God for guidance then dive into the word and learn about Him.  Don’t go blindly into the world unequipped to face off with the darkness coming your way. Knowing God’s word is like having a light shining into the dark crevasses. But if you don’t know what God’s word says then you can be easily swayed and won’t be able to lead someone in need to God.  

Psalm 119: 105

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

Let your life reflect God. Just as the moon reflects the sun’s light, we are to reflect God.

In John 1 1-5 says this about Jesus:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Jesus stepped into human history to a world filled with darkness and that darkness could not destroy over overtake His light.  

And we must reflect His light and shine it into the dark places where sin lives because now, more than ever, our world needs His light.  

Jesus came very humbly onto the human stage. He wasn’t dressed in royal clothing. He didn’t come from a wealthy family. He was born into a humble beginning and worked as a carpenter alongside His earthly father. Jesus’s appearance didn’t reflect His heavenly, kingly stature. He remained humble and obedient until death.

We, as his hands and feet, are to serve others and show those in need our amazing Savior.

And we are to stand firm. Remember the enemy’s goal is to seek, kill, and destroy. He focuses on your fears and tries to distract us from our purpose. Keep your light shining. No matter what’s happening in the world or how difficult the journey becomes, keep shining. And remember, while we are here on earth, we are called to be the light that leads those lost to Jesus, but don’t get too comfortable, because this world is not our home.

Hebrews 13:14 says, For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.

All the best. . .
