Friday June 12, 2015 “In the Darkness – Shine Bright”

Matthew 5:14-16 14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
       In Philippians 2:15 Paul the Apostle said “in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation – shine as lights.” In times of persecution and marginalization by society or government there is the temptation to hide the light of Christianity, to lay low instead of standing tall. And that is what Satan counts on – cowering Christians, invisible saints.
Let us pray today that in this day of what is right being called wrong and what is wrong being called right that God’s people let the voice of the Lord be heard loud and clear in the marketplace of life. That is where Jesus took the light of God. In Matthew 5:15 we are given the mandate to lift the light of God’s glory high so everyone can see its radiance. This is absolutely the worse time to retreat. We must lift the Light of God and His Word high and the gates of hell will not prevail against the advancement of truth.
