In the beginning, God made light shine out of the darkness. God then gave us His Son to shine and light the way for us. Now we are called to be God's light on earth. God has given us the example of His Son. He has given us the Bible as a guide. He has given us forgiveness through His Son. He loves us. We are to let this fire of God's light show through us in our words and actions.
Just like the fire glowing through the balloon at night, we are to be earthen vessels of light, earthly lanterns, fueled by God's greatness. If we glow for God, then we can light up the darkness of those we meet, giving God the glory for saving all who choose to believe!
Choose to be an earthly lantern for God and give Him all the glory!
Thank You for Your love and for the forgiveness through the sacrifice of Your Son. Help me to follow Your guidance in order to be a light in the darkness. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
