Lights

I love word pictures and analogies-to see spiritual truth in every day occurrences.  Here is one I noticed on Wednesday morning as I was driving before daybreak in the heavy fog.  The street lights are scattered along in different places along Hwy. 64.  The fog was descending and heavy and yet the lights broke through the darkness.The street lights may not have been bright enough to dispel all the darkness, but it was obvious there was a safe place of direction from the glow surrounding them.    This picture made me think of our Christian walk (our light) going out into this dark world. 

Without light the world is full of darkness and confusion.  Direction is essential to the Christian.  Without the light from God's word infused into our heart, we cannot know the path to walk nor can we be lights in a dark world.  Jesus said, "I am the light of world, He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life."

Friends, we are the "street lights" shining in the darkness of this world. As I looked toward those lights, I noticed some were brighter than others- a new bulb perhaps. We as Christians, have new bulbs, we just need to stay connected to power that provides brightness to the bulb.  Scripture teaches "But the path of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day." The path of the believer is one of increasing light, just as a sunrise begins with the faint glow of dawn and proceeds to the splendor of noonday. (john macarthur) . So here comes a question...How bright are you shining?  People will be drawn toward the lights that are shining the brightest.

Stay connect to Christ through His word.  "Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life.." Phil :14-16
