Keep Shining!

         The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. John 1:5

When you enter a dark room what is the first thing you do? Hopefully your answer was turn on the light. Believers are to be like salt and light in the world around us. We have seen lately how dark it can get for believers even here in the United States. It is much worse in countries which have eradicated Christ or any mention of Him from the country. God is light and Satan is dark. Light always overcomes darkness. 

Wherever you go you are to be a beaming light for Jesus. Don't walk around like a sour puss and be negative all the time but try to set an example in actions and words and let His love flow out of you to others. I once heard we believers may be the only 'Bible' anyone ever 'reads'. Keeping this in mind as our responsibility is huge in representing the kingdom. 

If you have been feeling a little beat up lately and hopeless, don't put out your light. Keep shining on and on for Jesus and the light will eventually totally eradicate  the darkness in the evil world.

PRAYER: Help me shine like a 'sunbeam' for you Lord. Even on bad days help me to call on you for help to keep shining and shining. In Jesus' name. Amen.
