HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! It’s amazing to see one year pass and another begin! Thank you for joining me here at Life of Heritage for another year of blogging, writing and publishing. I hope you enjoy this devotion that has sort of become my theme for 2018!
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Who doesn’t like the warmth of a nice glowing fireplace (a real one, that is)? Last month while working at the Denton Farm Park, I had multiple opportunities not only to enjoy them but also to start the fires! An amazing experience!
I’m also infatuated with candles (scented preferably). I love the flickering light and the scent of anything that smells woodsy.
My third “light love” is lanterns. Ahh! They are so old fashioned and cozy…*sigh*
Just recently I’ve been thinking about lights a lot. (My house is covered in them :) ) But seriously, it got me to thinking not only about THE LIGHT, but the light that we are supposed to be to others around us.
With 2018 now upon us, many are making New Years Resolutions. One of mine is to let my light shine. Fellow Christians, we are to be a light, shining the way to Salvation, telling others about our Lord and letting them watch our lives for an example. In a world full of darkness, we need to be that one candle that penetrates the gloom and points others to Hope in Jesus Christ!
The verse above makes a point in saying that “A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid.” Our job as Christians is to live in such a way that we bring Glory to our Creator and Heavenly Father!
How can you be a light, guiding others to Christ?
1. First and foremost, you must be saved.
2. Pursue a close relationship with God.
3. Put your Bible study to practice (if He says do it, do it; if He says don’t, don’t!)
4. Be a witness! Talk to people, pass out tracts! Take every opportunity to be a light for the Cause of Christ!
Having Compassion. Making a Difference.
