“…You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16 MSG
Do you feel like you are a light to others?
Maybe you feel more like you are a burden. Or maybe you are hiding in your home using this quarantine to justify not sharing your faith with others or even being active with your faith. Has sin darkened your light? Maybe religion and tradition have tarnished your light over time. What else is keeping your light from shining?
Spend some time asking the Lord what is blocking your light from shining. Confess everything to him and repent of your sin. Ask Him to help you remember who you are.
You are redeemed children of God. Your sins have been washed away. You have been raised to new life. Your hope is secure.
“For once you were full of darkness, but now you have light from the Lord. So live as people of light!” Ephesians 5:8 NLT
