Good morning brothers and sisters. I heard a song yesterday and it took me back to simpler times. When I didn't have a care in the world and I just believed. What song was it? It was This Little Light of Mine! Do you remember that song? If not, then go and find it. It is a great reminder of what we should be doing. I am now teaching it to my grandchildren. But who or what is that said light in that song? To find that answer, we turn to John 8:12- Then Jesus spoke to them again, "I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness but have the light of life." There's the answer. Jesus is the light! And in this verse He states, pretty plainly I might add, that whoever follows Him will not be darkness. See the darkness flees from the light. So if Jesus is the light of the world, who or what is the darkness? Lets go to scripture for that. John 3:19-20. Written in red, which means Jesus is speaking.19- And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil, 20- for everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. See what darkness is. But I won't dwell too long on the darkness but let's move on to the light. Because in a parable in Luke, Jesus tells us what to do with the Light. Luke 8:16-18. 16- No one, when he has lit a lamp, covers it with a vessel or puts it under a bed, but sets it on a lampstand, that those who enter may see the light. 17- For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light. 18- Therefore take heed how you hear. For whoever has, to him more will be given; and whoever does not have, even what he seems to have will taken from him. This scripture is for followers of Jesus Christ. If we follow Christ, WE CAN NOT HIDE!!! We must let that light of Jesus shine through us. Everything that is evil and wrong, God will expose, we just have to stand firm in His word and not compromise. He also warns us to be careful of hearing. Not all who say Lord, Lord knows Him. It is God's children time to shine. Let the whole world see Jesus the Light in you. Do not be afraid to stand on the commandments and promises of God. Repent, refresh, revive. Rise up children of God, rise up!
