Today’s Daily Light:
We Are Light That Is Meant to Shine…So Shine
Matthew 5:14-16 Jesus said “You are the light of the world. A city 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 men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”
Ephesians 5:8 Paul says “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light.”
When we were saved/redeemed/received new birth in Christ…through the work of regeneration in our spirit-man…through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit of God…we received ‘light’. The reason was ‘so that’ we would carry that light around in this dark world and shine the truth of God…the love of God…the existence of God….to shine that on the darkness. Are we doing that with all of our might…??
Remember the song you sang in Sunday School as a child… “this little light of mine…I’m gonna let it shine…let it shine…let it shine…let it shine.”
Father…we know we have your light inside us and we know we are to be light. Life and darkness drain our batteries and wear us down and we grow spiritually dim…and for me, I know I have to spend time in your word..in prayer and praise or I will loose power…become dim….my personal experience tells me that my batteries get drained and I will waste a lot of time and not be an effective light….help me not to do that as much I seek to finish this race strong. I pray the same for my family and friends…help us dear Father to be consistent light. Amen
