The Light of this World!

You used to be like people living in the dark, but now you are people of the light because you belong to the Lord. So act like people of the light and make your light shine. Be good and honest and truthful, as you try to please the Lord. Don't take part in doing those worthless things that are done in the dark. Instead, show how wrong they are. It is disgusting even to talk about what is done in the dark.  But the light will show what these things are really like.  Light shows up everything, just as the Scriptures say,“Wake up from your sleep and rise from death.Then Christ will shine on you.”  Act like people with good sense and not like fools.   These are evil times, so make every minute count.
 Ephesians 5:8-16
A follower of Jesus Christ who used to be a Muslim Imam told me that one difference between Christians and others is this: Everyone who does not follow Jesus is in the darkness, but Christians are walking in the light!

The world without God is a dark and frightening place!  Evil stands ready to entice you with forbidden pleasures and then destroy you in the wake of your sin!  Corruption is the cornerstone of many powerful institutions in this world.  World leaders and those who serve them traffic in deceit and lies!  In such a world that is filled with darkness the smallest light of even one life stands out and proclaims that Jesus is Lord!

Never minimize the importance of even the smallest act of standing for truth!  Let your light shine.  Remember that the deeper the darkness, the easier it is to see even one little candle!

"Lord Jesus, let my life shine like a light in this dark, dark world.  And may those who see my light know for sure that You are indeed the light of this world!  And may You be praised forever.  Amen."
