Light, it shuts out darkness. It can be blaring in the morning when you wake up. It can be invigorating from the sun. Lights can be dimmed to set a calming ambiance or can be shone to set the tone for an atmosphere. It can be used in x-rays to see inside the body. It can be used in the elements in appliances to cook with. Light on a button can indicate if a device is powered on or not. Light can also be in you. It is the light given from the source of knowing Jesus Christ, the light that shines His love.
And then there is the spotlight. This light is not necessary one on a stage. It is a moment. It is the trust people have in you. It is the integrity they see in you. It is them looking to you for counsel, for answers and for an example.
Many want to rush to get in the light, but we must become it first. That way, when the light shines, they will see that the light within is not fabricated but given by the Holy Spirit. It is a privilege to carry the light, and it is a responsibility to be in the light. Night moments will come, but the morning light will show up soon.
You are a light to someone. And for many of you reading this, the light is on you in this moment to shine the way of Truth. Do so with integrity, humility, and grace.
