Being a light for all to see!
This week’s topic: Being a light for all to see!
If you are down or struggling with something, would you want someone to press their religious beliefs on you as an answer to your problem? Or would you want to talk to someone who actually cares about what you are going through, even if they can’t offer a solution or completely comprehend the pain your dealing with.
1 John 1:6-9
This scripture talks about a man sent by God to be a light in the midst of a crumbling nation. Through his testimony, his story, his trials and tribulations, his openness, and his bravery, (cause it takes courage to put yourself out there) others would believe in God. John was not THE light but a witness to the light, meaning he believed so strongly in who Jesus was that he had to tell others that the TRUE light of the world was coming.
I think this speaks volumes for someone who needs help from God but is against the idea of Jesus or Christianity. People may not want to talk to a seemingly unreachable God about their problems. They may just need to talk to other people and hear their story. God gives believers the power to touch others by shining his light through us to other people. This doesn’t mean he’s telling us to shove our beliefs in people’s face; this means God has given us a job to help others by being there and being a friend.
Start reading the bible daily and ask yourself this question: What can I do to be a light? How will that look to my group of friends, my family, at my job or at my school? How will that affect my alone time, my time spent driving, every aspect of my life?
God loves you, I love you. Thanks for stopping by!
