One of the things the Lord expects from Christians is that they become light carriers. Thus, we are expected to bring the light of Jesus Christ into dark places and dark spaces. Wherever there is darkness, when the believer shows up light should enter the room and expose the darkness. Jesus said as much when He said “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a 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 (Matt 5:14:15).” Hence saints, are we lights in our homes? Are we lights on our jobs? Are we lights in our communities? There should be a distinct difference between the true believer and the world, to the degree that the world has to stand up and testify that there is something very different about us. When the light is evident the world can’t help but recognize that Jesus lives in us.
However, for many of us we have gotten to comfortable with the world and it’s hard to tell the difference between who and who is not on the Lord’s side. We have allowed hard times, difficulties, trials and tribulations to break us instead of make us. We have sought the easy way out or the alternative way instead of God’s way out of the mess we find ourselves in. Saints the hard times shouldn’t dim the light that lives in us it should cause the torch that’s in our hearts to burn even brighter because David said “Many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord delivereth them out of the all (Psalms 34:19). Thus, at the end of the day the Lord has warned us that trouble would come but he also promised us deliverance or you can say victory.
God Bless You
