A friend of mine sent me this devotion the other day while I was at work. I thought to myself, God knows exactly what we need before we do. It was hot, my spirit was yearning for a drink of water. Just as I sat down to take a ten minute break, my phone began to go off. I jumped up, grabbed the phone which revealed this message to me.
“While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” Jesus in John 9:5. Jesus Christ was the Truth which illuminated the darkness of the misunderstanding of the world. As the disciples lived with Jesus, the light of the world cast His brightness and dispelled the doubts and fears and confusion of their minds. The light of Jesus’ love infused their emotions. His light brought brightness to their relationships with others. As long as the apostles kept in fellowship with Jesus Christ, they were able to bring light to the world. The Christian church is God’s light in a dark world.
Furthermore, we are to proclaim the TRUTH, live in a quality of life, and communicate a power of love which will be light in a dark age. “In the morning, when the soul of the day is at it’s best, lean upon the windowsill of the Lord and look into His face, and get orders for the day. Then go out into the world with a sense of His hand upon your shoulder.” E. Stanley Jones.
I closed my eyes, and contemplated this magnificent light shining bright in this huge building. I couldn’t help but smile, and say thank you Lord for you are worthy of it all. Just that quick I felt energized, yet more confident, and with great purpose. My spirit was lifted and I was ready for battle. We should all place the full armor of God on every morning before we walk out the door. I encourage you to be a beacon of light for Jesus as the opportunity presents itself, you will be blessed.
