What do you do when you walk in a dark room? Instinct tells us to flip on the light switch. We want to be able to see and for some, the darkness may scare them. When you are in a room and light a candle the light from the candle illuminates the darkness.One tiny candle flame can light up a whole room. No one really wants to stay too long in a dark place. We want to quickly have some light so we can see around us.
As Christians we are to be the lights in a dark world around us. The world needs Jesus now more than ever. Look around you and you can see turmoil and chaos. The word of God is not being followed and evil is being called good. In this world we have to shine Jesus' light wherever we go. Are you lighting up the world around you? Do you try to show Jesus love and kindness by what you say and do? It is something to think about. Make a determined effort today to let the light of Jesus shine through you to those you come into contact with today. Light is stronger than darkness so be that light for those around you today. Matthew 5:14-16 tells us "You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." Go out and light up your world today!
PRAYER: Dear Father let us not hide our light under a basket but let us put it up on the lamp stand so we shine for you wherever you send us today. In Jesus Name. Amen.
"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it." (John 1:5)
