Make sure the switch is on…

Jesus spoke to His disciples “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lamp stand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”  (Matthew 5:14-16 NKJV)

Recently someone told me about a young Christian girl who sought help from prominent older women in her church.  She had experienced a situation of complete failure in her walk with Christ.  So young in Jesus, still awaiting the milk of the Word to nourish her, but no one responded.  Now this precious baby lamb of God is very frightened and angry.  I thank our Lord Jesus ‘another young Christian women’  suggested she spend some time with a common friend of theirs who loves the Lord and is much older in the faith.  The ‘older woman’ in the faith agreed to have coffee with the troubled girl and just talk.  Do you let your light shine…or just talk about it?  Sadly, many claiming our Savior’s name speak the words without walking the walk. Honestly, it takes a daily commitment to the Lord and His work.  This dedication is only accomplished by totally surrendering our will to our Heavenly Father.  Are you sure if your switch is on today..?♥ Streim

 

Light in/of the World

My brethren, let me say, be like Christ at all times. Imitate him in “public.” Most of us live in some sort of public capacity—many of us are called to work before our fellow-men every day. We are watched; our words are caught; our lives are examined—taken to pieces. The eagle-eyed, argus-eyed world observes everything we do, and sharp critics are upon us. Let us live the life of Christ in public. Let us take care that we exhibit our Master, and not ourselves—so that we can say, “It is no longer I that live, but Christ that lives in me.”  Charles Spurgeon

John 12:44-47 ” Then Jesus cried out and said, ‘He who believes in Me, believes not in Me but in Him who sent Me.  And he who sees Me sees Him who sent Me.  I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness.   And if anyone hears My words and does not believe,  I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. ”

Have a blessed day as you allow the Light of your Savior shine through… ♥ Streim
