Wednesday's Wonderful Word
"Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid." Matthew 5:14
Most of the world today is filled with darkness, and most of the talk today is viewed by darkness in how the people live. But when people live for Christ, we see that vast difference in the world, how they dress, how they act, how they talk. Because our light shines in this darkness, others take notice. Are others seeing your light shine? Will they be drawn to the Father by that light? Or will they simply say, oh they live just like us, why would I want to be a Christian. God forbid, may we let the world see God's grace and love shine though our daily lives, may we reach them for Christ while there is yet time. I always say I want to live the same when I am home as I do when I am at church, some times I do look pretty ratty, my hair a mess, and old stained and holey clothes on, but there is still something different in me, I still shine, If I ever loose that shine and that willingness to be Christ like, I hope he just says come on home, your no good to me here any more. I think many Christians have been called home early because of this very reason. When we get so much like the world around us, we just have no heavenly use, we do not have any affect on those around us, and there is no reason for God to leave us here. I must say there are times when I feel so heavy and laden, and just wish he would come get me, then he gives me a touch of his love, his strength, his power, and I have the will to face another day. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis; the Doctor told me with in 5 years I would probably be in a wheel chair, well I sure do not want that to happen, and I do not want to dwell on that fact of being ill, I want you to see the Spirit in me, going forward and being active, there are days I cannot hardly move, and my legs will not go much, but I refuse to lay down and quit. 1Corinthians 16:13 "Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong." God has left me here for a reason, I must carry out his commission and when he says lay down girl, your work is finished, then I will lay day. But, until then I will keep going, through his strength, knowing he will give me what I need to do his will. Have a very blessed Wednesday, and a wonderful prayer meeting tonight, pray one for another, and keep each of our bloggers in your prayers too. Let your light shine bright where ever you go. Follow the foot steps of Jesus.
