Don’t let your light go out! Keep it shining brightly!
This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.
The light that has come into the world is Jesus Christ. Just as the disciples did, we as believers in Christ carry this light with us and place it on display through our changed lives! “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16) Sadly, there are those in this world that love darkness, and therefore will not come into the light for fear of the light, and fear of a false shame. Forgiveness and a changed heart is found in the light, not shame and despair. Lord help us live in the light always!
