A Strong Light

Standard

Devotion:  Matthew 5:16

“Light of the world, You shone out of the darkness; glorious in heaven above.  Humbly You came to the earth You created…All for love’s sake became poor.”

This Light of the World pierced a very dark world indeed.  God created a special bright star, bright enough to deliver the shepherds and the wise men to the stable where Jesus lay.

No darkness can keep the Light of Jesus from penetrating this dark world.  Christian, do you let your light so shine before the people in your world?  The light inside of you is strong.  Don’t hide it under a bushel.  Let it shine so that the people will see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

Recently the light in my stove went out.  My husband bought an appliance replacement bulb.  It’s very dim and really is almost worthless; as far as being able to observe the food cooking inside.

                    Strength and brightness matters.

If your light is dim; you can’t penetrate the darkness of this world.  Be strong and courageous.  Do not be afraid.  The Lord your God is with you.  Sweet friend, you are inhabited by the light of the world.  Will you let Him shine through your good works?  Will you glorify your Father which is in heaven; by refusing to take a back seat to righteousness and truth?

Be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.  It’s by His power you can shine brightly.

Prayer in Motion:

Lord Jesus, I want to be a bright light to my world.  Help me to display You to the lost and dying people all around me.  Let me be a strong light for Jesus sake and glory.  In Jesus Name.  Amen
