We, as Christians, are called to be lights in the darkness.
Sometimes, it feels as though the darkness that is raging in our culture and in the world, is engulfing us. However, we must remember that through the power of the Holy Spirit, the light of Christ resides in our hearts and souls. That light calls out to be shared with those who are living in the darkness.
Listen to the voice of God that is stirring your heart.
There are people all around you that are suffering…all in different ways. See and hear the struggles and despair of those that are in need of compassion, love and mercy. Ask the Lord to direct you, so that you may know the needs of his children that he places on your path. It may be a family member, a friend, or someone that you come across in your day to day routine.
Listen to what souls are in need of. It may be that they just need a listening ear and heart. They may have a particular financial or material need that you can help with. They may be hungering for encouragement regarding their faith. They may be in dire need of hope.
You may be their lifeline to Jesus. Sometimes, a person needs to know that “somebody loves me” before they can accept that “God loves me.”
Let’s take the time to really see and hear those around us. Let’s love eachother and extend friendship and fellowship.
Let’s be that person who shares The Light of Christ.
