Shining the Light
We all have a message that we carry sometimes without realizing what we are conveying to others. As Christ followers are message needs to be one that brings Light and life. Too many times we let the world around us change our message to one that lacks hope and causes us to speak death into others and to situations. Solomon told us that "life and death are in the power of the tongue". I'm not saying it always easy but we need to make the choice to let His Joy shine through us despite our circumstance, that shining light attracts others they desire the light. But if we show negativity, are hopeless, if we gossip and back bite then we repel others, except maybe those thrive on those things. If our testimony is more moan than glory we need to make some adjustments. I want to be more like John the Baptist I want to show the world something different, something that breaks the walls of religion and tradition. I want my testimony to be one that reflects the Light of Jesus. How about you? John 1:6-9 There came a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a witness, to testify about the Light, so that all might believe through him. He was not the Light, but he came to testify about the Light. There was the true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man.
