Day 8 - You are the Light (May 10)

You Are The Light

You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. – Matthew 5:14-16

Humanity has in itself no light. Apart from Christ we are like an unkindled taper, . . . But when we turn toward the Sun of Righteousness, when we come in touch with Christ, the whole soul is aglow with the brightness of the divine presence. Christ’s followers are to be more than a light in the midst of men. They are the light of the world . . . Angels of glory wait to communicate through you heaven’s light and power to souls that are ready to perish. – Thoughts From the Mount of Blessing, p. 40

Heart Challenge

Did you read the quote shared above? Maybe read it again. Do you realize that angels are waiting to work through you to reach lost people? Isn’t this amazing?

You are invited not only to be filled with the Holy Spirit for your personal sanctification, but to actively participate in sharing the truth, love, and righteousness of Jesus to a world whose time is running out.

Think about your family, your friends, your neighbors, your co-workers. Ask God to show you who needs the light of Jesus in their life? Who should you pray for and also specifically contact this week?
