"No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light." Luke 8:16
IN JESUS TODAY!
"Ye are the light of the world." Mathew 5:14a Why are you the light? Because you have something that the world needs. If you're in a desert place with several other individuals and there is a great need for water, but you are the only one that has it, then you have become very important! You are able to quench the thirst of others and to save lives! If you're driving in a car with several others that are riding with you, and the car is soon to run out of fuel, but no one but you has any money to purchase that fuel, you now have become very important! You have the money to pay for fuel that everyone needs.
WE ALL NEED JESUS…
It's the same in this world. People need Jesus. You have him, and you are surrounded by many that don't have Jesus, so now you have become very important, now you can quench their thirst, you can bring peace to their hearts and minds, now you can lift up and encourage the downcast, now you can bring fuel to their life, and now you can lead them to Jesus who will save their soul. You are very important! You have what the world needs! Jesus in you, the light of the world, the water in the desert places, the fuel in this life's journey. You have it! Don't hide it! Share with those that do not have what you have.
Imagine being in these places and you are the one that has a need, but someone else is the only one around you that has what you need. What would it be like if they refuse to share it with you! What would it be like if you are dying and you can't get it? What will it be like if you couldn't go on one more day or one more mile without it? How would you feel towards that person that has it, but doesn't care enough to share?
PEOPLE NEED YOUR LIGHT, SHARE JESUS WITH THEM!
