Being The Light Of Christ In A Very Dark World

There is a little song that children learn in Sunday School that goes;
“This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.
Let it shine, Let it shine, Let it shine.”
That is a simply little children’s song but it conveys spiritual truth for us to remember. As Christians, we are the light of the world. We are to let our light shine in this world and that is the love of Christ. Jesus asked, “Would anyone light a lamp and then put it under a basket or under a bed? Of course not! A lamp is placed on a stand, where its light will shine.”
So, how do we let our light shine in this world? We do it by helping people. We do it by compassionately serving people. We do it by loving people.
We DON’T do it by judging people are throwing stones at people. We live in a very dark world. We live in a world of sin. In this very dark world, as Christians, we let our lights shine.
Today, be the light of the world. Let your light shine in this dark world. Offer a word of encouragement to someone. Say something kind to someone. Help someone. Be light in a very dark world.
