Today’s Word – VI – Light

Mar 3rd, 2010 by Other | 0

Matthew 5:14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

Before the new marvel of ‘Glow Sticks’ as children we had toys that we could hold under a light bulb for a time and then when placed in a dark closet or room they would glow and give off light. Nowadays all you have to do is bend your ‘Glow Stick’ until it cracks a little bit and it will glow for hours. When pondering this thought I realized the will of God for our lives while enduring trials. His desire for us is to be ‘Glow-in-the-Dark Christians’. While processing this thought a bit further I understood that the degree to which we glow or shine in the darkest of times is measured by the degree to which we expose’ ourselves to the light of His truth and spirit during the daytime of our spiritual lives when things are more calm and serene. The childhood toy would only glow for a duration of time equivalent to the time it was held under the light. The ‘Glow Stick’ has to be broken before it gives off a long-lasting glow. If we are to be glowing Christians in this day we must allow the Lord to break our will and we must spend much time exposing ourselves to the light of His presence. The final analysis of whether a Christian is glowing in the dark is when the worst possible news comes in from the doctor. Maybe a husband has cancer or a wife has heart disease or a young child, a terminal illness. Perhaps the economy is not yielding its crop of earnings sufficiently enough to meet the daily needs of your household. Whatever the scenario may be, if we can still sing, “Amazing Grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me”, this would be a good indicator that we are ‘Glow-in-the-Dark Christians.

Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
