The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

“Words which do not give the light of Christ increase the darkness.” Mother Teresa

“For you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light” Ephesians 5:8 (NASB)
Servants of Christ shine with His light in a society that is hopelessly lost. We pose a weird phenomenon to those in darkness. They cannot figure us out! And that is exactly as Jesus planned it. Think of some distinctive characteristics of light:
Light is silent. No noise, no big splash, no banners–light simply shines. It’s like a single lighthouse along a rugged shoreline. All it does is shine as it turns.
Light gives direction. No words, no sermon. Jesus says that others “see” our actions.
Light attracts attention. You don’t have to ask people to look at you when you turn a light on in a dark room – it happens automatically.
If you are a Christian family in a non-Christian neighborhood, you are the light in that darkness. The same is true if you are the only Christian nurse on your floor, or student in your school, or professional in your firm or group, or salesman in your district. You are a light in darkness–a servant of God, who is being watched, who gives off a very distinct message…often without a word being said.
Let it shine! Don’t attempt to show off how bright and sparkling you are – just shine!
Charles Swindoll
