When someone gives you a good recipe, you make it and then you want to share it. When someone gives you a beautiful gift, you want to display it where it will bless others. That's the way it is with God, when He gives us something, we want to share it or display it in our lives. The light that we are following, God wants it to light up our life in many ways and also wants us to share it and when we receive something from God and share it, we receive more so we can share more. It becomes a greater blessing to us as we share with others. I am finding that out as I share my worship experience with those of you who are reading my blog each day. The more I share, the more I am blessed. It is the same with you, as you study your Bible and share with others, the more you will be blessed.
Ephesians 5:8 "For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light."
Matthew 5:14 "You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify our Father in heaven."
Isaiah 2:5 "O house of Jacob, come and let us walk in the light of the Lord." Isaiah the prophet is pleading with Israel to come and walk in the Light of the Lord. Many times they failed to follow the Light of God and God had to wake them up to come back to Him. And I believe He is pleading with us today to come and walk in the Light of the Lord.
We are God's light in this dark world and he wants us to shine bright and clear to all those with whom we come in contact with..
1 John 1:4-7 "And these things we write to you that your joy may be full. This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin."
That is a wonderful promise, we all need cleansing don't we? I know that I do and I pray every day to be like Jesus in every way. Won't you join me in following the Light of the World and then letting His Light shine through you to others. It's going to be a wonderful experience. I'm looking forward to meeting you some day in the earth made new. It will be wonderful. Grandma Joan
