As we passed this art display in California, I thought to myself, 

“Is this what church looks like?”IMG_1817

So many lights in one place………

It’s beautiful, but at the same time, not really practical for what a light is called to do.

Jesus says we are suppose to be “the light of the world.”

We live in a time of great darkness.

Light is needed everywhere.

While church is important because we need a place to be encouraged and reminded that we are not alone in the darkness,

God uses us most when we are “the light” standing alone in a dark place.

Just think of all the unlit places that could be changed if these lights were separated.


Today, if you feel like you walk alone in a dark world, know that God is using you in a special way.

And the next time you are in church, look around and be encouraged…you are not alone in this dark world.



You are the light of the world.

A city on a hill cannot be hidden.
