Have you noticed how dark it is these days?
The light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness doesn’t extinguish the light.
John 1:5 (CEB)
The news on TV, online, and even our Facebook feed is filled with bad, scary, and horrific details.
We need to remind ourselves, and each other, that as dark as it gets….the darkness will not put out the light.
Have you ever noticed that when the light comes on in a dark place, the light is even more bright?
That’s the contrast we are seeing in our world right now.
People living in darkness need to see.
They need you and I to shine, to be the tangible light of Jesus, so they too, can see.
More than ever…the world needs us to shine our Light!
Remember, our Message is not about ourselves; we’re proclaiming Jesus Christ, the Master.
All we are is messengers, errand runners from Jesus for you.
It started when God said, “Light up the darkness!” and our lives filled up with light
as we saw and understood God in the face of Christ, all bright and beautiful.
2 Corinthians 4:5-6
What can we do today to shine?
To be spreaders of Light in the world?
