THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Pastor Dave Charlton shared that a mother with a fidgety seven-year old boy once confided how she finally got her son to sit still and be quiet in a worship service.
About halfway through the sermon, she leaned over and whispered,
"If you don't be quiet, Pastor Charlton is going to lose his place and will have to start his sermon all over again!"
Somewhere, a little “light” of understanding clicked on!
That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation,
among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
This is a “perverse” world!
We Christians do live IN it!
And, all of us Christians need to shine a little “light” of understanding around us!
Light is used to illuminate.
Christian, let your conversation and actions exhibit the fact that Jesus is IN you!
Light is used to guide.
Christian, let your conversation and actions guide others to know Jesus!
Lights are used to warn.
Christian, let your conversation and actions warn of the impending danger of being without Jesus!
Lights are used as comfort and warmth.
Christian, let your conversation and actions bring comfort and warmth to others.
C’mon – it’s a DARK world!
Let those lights SHINE!
