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