Be the light!

We are well past the shortest day of the year and are slowly heading towards lighter evenings and mornings but even in the dark it is interesting to see how easy it is to dispell the darkness. A few small LED lights on the window sill and the darkness outside is defeated our room is well lit and comforting, the darkness outside is still there but it doesn't have the same effect on us.

It seems like our world is getting ever darker with all that is going on but we have a light that defeats the darkness, Jesus. No matter how dark it seems to be getting around us we can have light with us and inside us, but what good is light if we only use it for selfish reasons, we are called to be lights in a dark world, today shine the light of Jesus to someone in need of Him and the light He brings even in the darkest of times.

Matthew 5:14-15 New King James Version

14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.

John 8:12 New King James Version

12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

Matthew 5:16 New King James Version

16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

John 1:1-5 New International Version - UK

The Word became flesh

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
