Even in the darkness the light still shines.

Jesus says 'I am the light of the world'. As this world gets ever darker (or maybe I'm just watching too many news reports) we desperately need more light, Jesus says He is the light but He also calls us as His followers to 'be the light'.

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.

The Bible also tells us that we are a chosen generation, called out of darkness into His marvellous light. This comes from 1 Peter 2 : 9 which in the King James Version of the Bible refers to Christians as a 'peculiar people'. I like this version, I quite like being one of God's peculiar people especially when it means I am called into the light, but we're not just called into the light, but called to be it, that is the challenge each and every day.

Lord, today and everyday help us be the light in a dark world.
