Light is an amazing thing. We get light from the sun; an incredible amount of light that travels through space and “arrives” here on earth. We can also create artificial light through electricity. Light is quickly able to dispel the darkness. A flip of a switch or the pulling up of a shade changes the entire character of a room. Also, it only takes a little bit of light to be able to see. We are the same way as followers of Jesus. As the “light of the world” we have an amazing, God-given ability to change the character of a home, an office, a workshop or a team. Even if you are the only “light” for Christ in any of those environments, you can make a great difference. People will see Jesus in your light. They may not respond at that moment…They may even attempt to dim your light or even turn you off; however, know that your light is making a difference.
So shine. It might not be easy and it might not always look pretty but shine and let God use you in the very dark world in which we live.
