We live in difficult times. I would also use some other words. Depraved and Deceived. I am saddened by the constant reports that come everyday of a world that does not care about the Kingdom of God. We think, things are bad spiritually as they have ever been. People seem to be unmoved by anything spiritual. Then this is the time for our light to shine. Matthew 5:14 says that we are the light of the world. Matthew 5:16 says for us to let our light shine. We are not to hide our light, but allow it to shine into the world around us.
We are here to be an influence. Salt is an influence against human corruption. Light is an influence against human ignorance. We have been given a great opportunity. Where there is darkness, the light shines brighter. I am not here to tell people what I am against! I am here to tell the world that there is life, hope and a future in a relationship with Jesus Christ. Most people are guided by the conduct of their neighbors and friends.
Light is active. Light is lifegiving. Plants grow toward the light. How many people are drawn to your life? Light is silent. It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. It is not about our grand discussions or posts on social media. It is how we live our lives every day. EVERY DAY! Not one day a week or a couple of days a year. We may all have different personalities, but we have the same Lord and Savior.
Let your light shine today!!
