Word for Today: Light (4)-We are the light of the world.
Ministry of the Word(MOW) : True Spirituality
“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid” (Matthew 5:14).
Christians are to reflect the light of Christ. A Christian who follows Jesus completely cannot walk in darkness. No doubt that every one prefers light to darkness. However, not everyone knows how to get light or how to sustain light. Please, note that we are talking about spiritual light here.
“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life” ( John 8:12). We see from our memory verse that Jesus transferred His mantle to all true believers.
There is no darkness in Christ Jesus. Make Jesus your number one priority and see how impossible it is for any man to quench your light. No one can ever put off the light in Christ Jesus:
“The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? ” Psalm 27:1).
Ignorance is darkness. The church need to be free of fear, doubt, unbelief, sickness, poverty, frustration, stagnation, failure etc . These are all products of darkness. Unbelievers should be able to run to the church and enjoy light.
Walking in the light of Jesus Christ is an individual responsibility:
“Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee” (Isaiah 60:1).
Have a Spirit-filled week.
Thank you Jesus
Dear Father, we pray for everyone sincerely connected to your Word, that they may enjoy light in your word and be able to separate light from darkness in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
