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
