ILLUMINATE YOUR WORLD!

Today we are looking at the letter "I". Our goal in our Christian walk should be to illuminate the world with our light. Matthew 5:14-16 says, "You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven." 

As Christians, it isn't up to us whether to be a light or not - we are lights because we are Christians. However, it is up to us as to how bright or dim our light will be. Jesus wants our lights to be bright, giving light to everyone around us.

What should we do when our lights begin to dim? When our batteries seem to be getting weak? We can recharge our batteries to make our lights brighter and brighter, by constantly growing in God’s Word and letting His Word live through us. Our lights will become brighter when we plug ourselves in to the power source - GOD!

Have you ever noticed that the darker a room is the brighter a little light seems to be? It's the same with our light, it should shine brightly in the world. You may feel that your one little light can't make a difference, but it can! When people around you see your light shining brightly remember who you are shining for - Jesus! And as the verse above reminds, it is God our Father who will be praised because of your light.
