10/02/07 - Light Bulb

Has your night light bulb ever burnt out? Well, ours did and for about three nights we were without a night light in our bathroom. For three nights I stumbled around in the dark, hoping not to hit my chin on any object on the way to the bathroom. When I'd sneak in the boys room before bed to check on them, I could see nothing!

Yesterday, I picked up a pack of four of these little bulbs.

What a difference! I could actually see when I had to get up in the middle of the night. That little bulb provides enough light to light the whole bathroom, hall, and the boys room.

We live in a very dark world. We are called to be a light and it amazing what a little light can do. Light will always win over darkness! Darkness can never over take light.

(Matthew 5: 14-16 "You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.)

We are called to live a life set apart, different, than the world. You may feel like you are the only one who has a desire to remain emotionally pure. You may feel like friends don't understand you. At time, you may wonder if saving your heart is really worth it!

But be the light in this dark world. Help people who are stumbling around, knocking into things, hurting themselves, and clueless how to get where they need to go. Be a light today for Jesus!
