Someone shared a great thought with me this other day, and I thought I’d pass it along.
Maybe it will be one you’ll come back to throughout the week…
If we, as Christians, are the light, and we have the Light shining through us, then, we are much like a flashlight shining into a darkened place.
In a darkened space where there is no other light, when you are holding the flashlight,
You can see the light.
But you can also see the darkness all around you.
All of it.
When you are holding the light, you don’t see the light as brightly as when you are standing in front of the light.
When you’re standing in front of the light, it can almost blind you,
Nothing is hidden.
So, keep shining even when it feels the darkness is crowding in around you.
The Light within you cannot be snuffed out unless you turn it out.
The Light within you will shine brightly no matter who or what attempts to destroy it.
The Light within you is eternal and has eternal impact on all who see it.
Keep shining the light even when all you see is utter darkness with the tiniest light.
Be the Light to a darkened world.
In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.John 1:4-5 NKJV
In Him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.John 1:4-5 NIV
