Shine on, Christians!

Standing out. Shining in the darkness.

The economy is in free fall, the misery index climbing to summer temperature heights, and it's stinking hot.

The world is slipping into chaos, earthquakes shake the foundations, and drought consumes the food supply.

But we Christians are a different people, our eye look to the skies in anticipation of His return. We are not bound to this earth, Heaven is our home.

Around us people are frantic.

Now is the time for us to shine. Let the world see His light of hope in us. Demonstrating His Peace beyond understanding in a world full of turmoil.

Now is the time to cling to the Lord, rejoice that He is, and let His light shine through you.
The world needs us to be different. To be peculiar. To be a light shining in the darkness to lead them to Jesus.
Deuteronomy 14:2
For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God, and the LORD hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.

1 Peter 2:9
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;

Matthew 5:14
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

  1. Oh, you just brought back so many encouraging songs from my past. "Take on the royal priesthood. Become a holy nation." and "Into marvelous light I'm running, out of darkness out of shame."

    What great songs to buzz through my head today and remind me of these truths! Thanks!
