Today's Verse: Matthew 5:14

Monday, May 13, 2013

You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.
— Matthew 5:14

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Darkness dominates our world. Despite appearances, darkness controls so much of what is said and how it is viewed by the world. When someone lives for Christ, they will be noticed. Their allegiance to Jesus and his righteousness cannot be ignored. So what are we going to do with that light? Are others going to see and be drawn to our Father in Heaven who sent his Son as Savior? Or, are they going to reject the way of Christ because our walk is all talk and not much service? Let's let them see God's grace through our lives so they will come to know the Savior!

My Prayer...

Holy and Righteous Father, thank you for your grace that saved me. Please help me reflect your character and grace in all that I do so that when folks notice me and know of my Christian commitment, they will glorify you because of the service they have seen. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
