We can all agree that the world is a dark place right now. You just need to read the headlines, actually, you can just talk to someone and some bad news is bound to come up.
Every day the world is getting darker.
We, as Christians, are lights. We shine for Jesus. We shine because of what He did for us, we reflect God’s love and light.
As the world gets darker, the more our light shines, the more we will stand out in the world.
We will be noticed!
The more we shine; the more people will see that we are different. We will be less and less liked and accepted by the world.
This is scary and will not be easy.
But God calls us to step out, to shine brightly. He calls us to be lights that show people who God is.
Our light must attract the attention of those living in darkness. Our light must show the hope that God’s grace gives.
God promises to be with us, to give us courage to shine in this dark world!
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” 2 Timothy 1:7
“Be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
