“Don’t be afraid; don’t be paralyzed. It’s time to live; we’ve got nothing to hide. We’re going out tonight. We are the light and we’re shining bright … in every city and every town we’re on a mission for the lost to be found. Light it up like a wildfire. Can you feel it now—God is alive!”
Sometimes we get so busy or so lazy or so preoccupied with life’s challenges that we forget why we are here. We were meant to shine—to light up our world with hope and let our love burst out to the world like a wildfire. We need to reignite our faith and trust God with our schedules and our plans, then go out to cities and towns where the love of Jesus is needed desperately. Let’s break through fear, quit being paralyzed and take action! It’s time to live; time to burn brightly for the Lord so that the world can see God’s love, grace and mercy. Light it up!
Isaiah 60: 1-3 “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, the darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.”
Questions: Do you feel like your life shines brightly to the world around you? What do you want to work on so you can make changes to be a light in your personal world?
Prayer Power: Lord, please reignite my life so I can be on fire for you, shining your love and grace to the world around me. Guide my schedule and my heart so I can do a better job of making a difference in people’s lives, pointing them to you. Amen.
