Are you bright?

Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;

1 Thessalonians 5:5
Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: 
we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

When we became born again, born by the Spirit of God and not the will of the flesh, we became children of light. He called us out of darkness and into His marvelous Light.

We should be different from those who hide in the dark. Those given over to a life against the things of God. Just as light shatters the darkness, and the things that live in the darkness flee at the sight of the flame of His light, so should we be making a difference.

Will we be liked, popular? No. Jesus wasn't popular with the religious and powers of the elite. They feared Him and sought to kill Him. But as long as He was here on earth, He shone brightly. A beacon of hope to those who were perishing. A light for any who might desire to be saved.

Remember the little song - "This little light of mine, I'm going to let it shine."

How true and how needed in this darkening world. Shine brightly, recognizing that it is not your light but His that shines through you. Be not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

Shine! Our hour is coming. He is coming. Throw off the grave clothes of darkness and walk in His light, following in the steps of Jesus.
