Imagine if you were trapped inside Madison Square Garden, in the pitch darkness, with over 19,000 people who were all trying to find their way out of the darkness and there were small handful of people who had a light—but wouldn’t turn it on. Meanwhile, people are being trampled, injured, and killed. Some are cursing and fighting and working evil under the cover of the darkness. Others, claiming to know the way out, are leading people in hopeless circles. Many are so deluded by the darkness,  they claim light doesn’t even exist.

Think about how much of a difference just one true light would make.

One light would separate the lies from the truth and reveal the door of freedom. Jesus said His followers are the light. “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.” (Matthew‬ ‭5:14-15‬) Jesus said “I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.” (John‬ ‭10:9‬)

If we are being the light, then we are making a difference—we are showing others Jesus—the door to their freedom.

Think about what you’ve got planned today. Will it reflect the light, and reveal the truth about Jesus who is “the way, the truth, and the life” and leads lost souls to the Father? (John 14:6)

We live in a very dark world, where people are hurting, delusional, lost, led astray and dying. WE have the truth of the Gospel. Most of us aren’t pastors, and thus, we have an even greater opportunity to be light because there is typically more need for light OUTSIDE the church than IN it. The greater the darkness, the more distinctive our light can shine. When we walk in the light of His Word, the lost and dying can know HIM by the light in our eyes, the words from our mouth, and the deeds of our hands. 

When we know God, we walk as light in darkness because “God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.” (I John‬ ‭1:5‬)
