I wanna be guilty! I pray that my life brings honor and glory to His precious name, that those who come in contact with me can see by my words and actions that I am a follower of the One True King, Jesus my Lord and Savior. That my life reflects His light into the darkness of this world, that sparks may catch in others in order to become a bright flame of believe washing clean their souls.
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16
I have thought on this often lately. There have been several circumstances in my life of late that brought the idea of living out my faith for the world to see. Of walking the walk not just talking the talk. There are a few verses I keep going back to, I find them strengthening as I face each day trying to be in the world and a light unto it without allowing it to draw me in, dim my light, hide me, overcome me.
In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. John 1:4-5
That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. John 1:9
But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. Matthew 10:33
