A Light in the Darkness
Despite varying worldviews and religious beliefs, most people believe that our world, as we know it, is fast approaching a seismic shift, if not an end. Speculations of the cause of such an occurance include international wars, global warming, natural disasters, and spiritual events.
When the Son of God, Jesus, came to earth as a baby, time shifted into a new dimension – we entered the last days. After Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection, He promised that He would come again.
We are living in the last days – the end times. In fact, we are living in the very last days, as evidenced by an increase in selfishness, sin, and satan’s efforts.
But the last days are not just gloom and doom. There is hope for those of us living in the last days. The power and glory of God will be revealed in the last days as never seen before!
The Apostle James wrote these words:
“You also, be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.”
James 5:8 ESV
The darkness of the last days is being pierced with the Light of Jesus Christ. Not only is He the “Light of the world,” the bible uses the exact same phrase to describe us believers!
Instead of cursing the darkness, let’s shine the light! Let the love, joy, and hope of Jesus shine brightly through your words and deeds!
Matthew encourages us to “Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven!”
In the midst of darkness, shine your light!
