Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Matthew 4:14
God uses ordinary people like you and me to do extraordinary things in this world. God Almighty the Creator of this world can do anything as He wishes but yet He chooses us to get involved in His plan and do great things using us.
Christ is the Light of this world – When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12. In this world we have many religions and programs that promises to show people how to reach success, peace and happiness. God’s word tells that Christ is the Light of this world, and He only remove the darkness in our hearts and He will show us the way to eternal life. All other religions will appear to lead us to peace but can never give us the ultimate light that comes through Christ.
God’s word is the light guiding us in life – Every day brings about so many challenges and we are faced with so many situations where we have to take important decisions in our lives. We all have been in situations where we have regretted the decisions that we have made. This results mainly due to the fact that we do not have sufficient knowledge of God’s word and we do not have our daily time with God where we sit at His feet and hear His voice. Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.
Christ must live in us – The question that many ask in today’s world is that they want to see proof of God’s existence. But God’s word says that God lives in us and He is patiently knocking on each one’s heart to come in and have fellowship with us. The only way for us to know the truth about Christ is to let Him come into our hearts and give our lives to Him and enter into a relationship with Christ. Revelation 3:20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.
The light of Christ must shine through us – Finally, we must make an impact where God has placed us. In fact, a person who has Christ living in him or her cannot keep quiet about this love relationship. It bubbles in our heart and pushes us to see the suffering and pain of those around us. God makes us an instrument in His kingdom and we become channels of peace and blessing to others. We begin to see miracles in our everyday life as we listen to the voice of God within us prompting us to help those around us. Matthew 5:15 Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven
Complete dependence on Christ – The more we depend on Christ, the more His power flows through us and the anointing rests on us and we can do great things for us. It is not our resources and power that enables us to do great things, but as we humbly depend on Him, His grace covers us and we see supernatural things done through us. Zechariah 4:6 Not my might , not by power but by my spirit says the Lord.
Prayer – Father, I accept your Son , our Dear Lord Jesus as my Savior and confess of all my sins, I surrender my life to Him and invite Him to live in my heart. I want the Light of God to shine through my life and bring healing and love and restoration in the lives of those around me. Use me a channel and instrument for your kingdom. In Jesus Name – Amen
