You Are Light!

“You’re sons of Light, daughters of Day. We live under wide open skies and know where we stand. So let’s not sleepwalk through life like those others. Let’s keep our eyes open and be smart. People sleep at night and get drunk at night. But not us! Since we’re creatures of Day, let’s act like it. Walk out into the daylight sober, dressed up in faith, love, and the hope of salvation” (1 Thessalonians 5:4-8, The Message).
We should be celebrating every day! Jesus provides freedom far beyond what we could ever dream. When I first accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior, I didn’t have a clue as to what I was getting into. I smile here. I only knew that I wanted Jesus in my life. I had no idea that He would make my life better, more interesting and more exciting than I could have imagined.
Even after my salvation I lay dormant for years, not using all the opportunities He laid before me. I never felt worthy to serve as the light He intended me to be. I allowed the evil one to whisper sweet nothings in my ear. There’s nothing you can do for Jesus; He doesn’t need you. You would put Him to shame, so just stay back and keep your mouth shut. Oh, you see someone hurting? You don’t need to help, just pray. Yes, even the devil will tell you to pray if it keeps you from being a light.
We have hope and a future. We know God’s plan for the future and it will happen. We are Light. Light reveals. Each one of us is called to reveal Him in our own special way. People can see Him in our lives, let’s share Him. The miracle is that He chose us to do this.
