What it Means to be a Light............

As we passed this art display in California, I thought to myself, 

"Is this what church looks like?"IMG_1817

So many lights in one place.........

It's beautiful, but at the same time, not really practical for what a light is called to do.

Jesus says we are suppose to be "the light of the world."

We live in a time of great darkness.

Light is needed everywhere.

While church is important because we need a place to be encouraged and reminded that we are not alone in the darkness,

God uses us most when we are "the light" standing alone in a dark place.

Just think of all the unlit places that could be changed if these lights were separated.

Today, if you feel like you walk alone in a dark world, know that God is using you in a special way.

And the next time you are in church, look around and be encouraged...you are not alone in this dark world.

 

MATTHEW 5:14

You are the light of the world.

A city on a hill cannot be hidden.

That's awesome, Tammy! I've often related being a light to flashlights. They're more useful when it's really dark than at dusk, when there's already a little bit of light. There's a danger though, if you don't keep your batteries charged you're more at risk in the dark world. In the dark no one can see you trip, but no one really cares either.

Christine,

I love that analogy!! You are so right about needing recharged and tripping in the dark.......no one sees or often cares.

Love you!

Hope you day has moments of "recharging!"

Tammy :)

I really liked this Tammy. Very vivid picture of what we don't want to do. Stay all clustered together. So glad you are having a fun Spring break with Olivia. Safe travels when you go home.
