All believers in Christ are called to shine God’s light, to share the love of Christ with the world. It may seem like an impossible task since we are human.
The world has been dark since the moment Eve chose to eat fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and when Adam chose to side with his wife rather than with God. However, God has always been there to light the way out of the darkness. Even when He removed them from the garden, God was there every step of the way.
Today we see darkness encroaching in every corner of the world. It’s nightly news now. Even parts of the church have gone dark. Thankfully, the Holy Spirit is still here and in the remnant. We are the light in the darkness right now. We are not to hide it out of fear. [Pro 29:25] We are to go forth in boldness in Christ, fearing not man but the One who deals with eternal life. [Luke 12:4-5]
Shining the light of God is a calling of all followers of Christ. We are to be a witness every day, in every situation. It is not easy, and our human-ness can take over. Even that is an opportunity because we can stop – realize our actions and words – and do what Christ would have us do in that situation.
God uses us every day. We just need to be willing to let His light shine through us!
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.[Mat 5:16 NKJV]

God is the Light. He shines everywhere, even in the darkness. Please help us shine His light. Let others see His light in us in this dark world.
In Jesus Name, Amen
