Let Your Light Shine
“He was the lamp that was burning and was shining and you were willing to rejoice for a while in his light. ~John 5:35
Christ was speaking of John the Baptist in this verse. However, it made me think about us and our temporary journey here on this earth. Will it be said of us when we depart that others were able to “rejoice for a while” in the light we provided?
Are we acting as a light to our family and our friends? Or do we bring darkness into the lives of others? We have a choice to make everyday. Have you ever had a friend who never has anything good to say or to report?
We all go through ups and downs. Christ himself felt sadness and disappointment. Jesus wept at the news of his friend Lazarus’s death. Christ was disappointed that his disciples could not even stay awake to watch with him on the night of his betrayal. He was betrayed by a friend, Judas. Despite this, Christ provided us with encouragement and hope. Jesus had compassion and showed love. He was the light of the world.
Again therefore Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world; he who follows Me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life.” John 8:12
Christ was our perfect example. Will we follow that example and be a light to those around us?
Lord, I come before you seeking the strength and skill to overcome my enemies. Grant me I pray, the wisdom to recognize evil, the courage to confront it, and the strength to destroy it. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
