Shine The Light

1 As He passed by, He saw a man blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” Jesus answered, “It was not that this man sinned, or his parents, but that the works of God might be displayed in him. We must work the works of Him who sent me while it is day; night is coming, when no one can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” ~ John 9:1-5

Night is the absence of the sun in the sky above. In other words, night is the absence of the dominant light. There is still the moon and the stars that shine their light upon the earth, but the darkness is the dominating force that prevails.

The night will come when we Christians begin to take the light that is within us and hide it under a bushel instead of placing it on the lampstand so that it might light the whole room.

Therefore, when the oppressing darkness of night comes, the Christians, the light of the world, will hide their light instead of sharing it with the world. We see it happening today. We can’t tell some Christians from non-Christians. They look alike. They talk alike. They act alike. And neither emit any light.

Oh, but Brother Kenny, Jesus said that He was the light of the world. True, but only as long as He was in the world, then we, as His representatives, would carry His light to the world.

Once Jesus was taken up into heaven, we became the light to the world. Now we are to reflect Jesus’ light, to guide the unbeliever out of darkness and into the light, not join the darkness or try to look like the darkness.

How can darkness reflect light?

Christians want to be all tatted up, looking like the world in order to win the world. They dress any old how, again looking like the world, to go to worship so that the world will feel comfortable. It’s not about feeling comfortable; it’s about shining your light in order for the unbeliever to see your good works and let Godly conviction consume the nonbeliever bringing a sense of the need for repentance.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Shine The Light.
