When we follow Jesus, as we learned yesterday, we know that our brothers and sisters are counting on us. In following Jesus, we also become like Him. In allowing Him lordship over us, a part of His light transfers and becomes a part of us. And we need to let that light shine forth from us to our brothers and sisters in this world. However, we cannot do that if we “hide” that light.
Questions for further thought:
1. Do we actually think of ourselves as being a part of His light to others?
2. Do we question that His power is in us to be that light to others?
Challenge: Let’s remember that, if we are part of Jesus’ light to others, He gave us all of the power in and through Him to accomplish His purposes here on earth! Therefore, we shouldn’t be afraid that we’ll “mess up” or somehow “stop” His light in us to show through to others. He’s more powerful than our human foibles, doubts, and perceived inadequacies. Let’s ask Him to give us the words He wants us to have, when He wants them, and for whom He wants them. We just need to listen and obey, and He will do the rest.
