Light In A Dark World

Do all things without murmurings and disputings: That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God,without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world(Philippians 2:14-15).

You’re the light of the world; you’re a city set on a hill(Matthew 5:14); meaning that you’re the solution to the darkness in the world. The Bible says,“For,behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people…” (Isaiah 60:2). The gross darkness in the world is a sign that it’s your time to arise, shine and light up your world.Romans 8:19 says, “For the earnest expectation of the
creation waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.”The world is waiting for you to manifest the glory of God, to free it from the decay and corrupting influences of Satan.Psalm 74:20 says the dark places of the earth are filled with the habitations of cruelty. That’s talking about spiritual darkness and wickedness that’s prevalent in today’s world.But when you show up, the darkness and cruelty are dispelled. When you come into the world of the unsaved,bearing the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, salvation comes to them.Your light gives meaning, direction and beauty to your
world. You’re the light in a dark world. Jesus said, “…As my Father hath sent me, even so send I you” (John 20:21). He
came to give our lives a meaning and then sent us as lights to bring glory, excellence and meaning to the lives of those around us.This is your ministry. This is your life. 1 Peter 2:9AMP declares, “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood,a dedicated nation, [God’s] own purchased, special people,that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvellous light.”

PRAYER
Dear Father, I fulfil my calling,
ministry and responsibility as the
light of the world by expressing
your righteousness, and
impacting my world with the
Gospel of your grace. I give
meaning, direction, beauty, glory,
and excellence to the lives of
men in my world, turning them
from the power of Satan unto
you, and from darkness into light,
in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
