Letting God’s Light Shine
Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows Me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (John 8:12). We have no light of our own; as we follow Christ, His light provides illumination that brings us life. Jesus called us lights. He said, “You are the light of the world…let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:14,16). Only God’s elect, His redeemed children, His “chosen people,” whose lives declare “the praises of Him Who called [us] out of darkness into His wonderful light” (1 Peter 2:9), are able to let God’s light shine. To be God’s light in this world means that we show His love, His compassion, and His forgiveness to those around us.
Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that Your light shines in this dark world. May Your light within me shine through me to others. In Your precious name I pray. Amen.
Blessings on your Journey as a Steward!
