LIGHT-BEARERS



What are light-bearers

They are you and I, all of God's children.
Even though the world today is full of pain and bitterness, it is no different than the times in the old testament.  God tried so hard to help the people then also and it got so bad that he had to wipe it out and start over. He was willing to give his only son to save us this time. I know some of you say you could never do that, but think about it...  if you had to give your own life to save your child... you would do it. God loves us soooo much that he was willing to give his only son to save us.... his children.

He sent us here as light-bearers of his word, to shine or light and share it with the world. We hear on a daily bases the bad news on the TV, we ask oursleves if we as Christians can do anything is such an environment.  Not unless we can truly understand the needs of people that are hurting and need God in their life. We deal in a world that has taught us to not trust anything or anybody so people are fearful in everyway. BUT... as Christians God gave us his light to let it shine. Remember, when you are around other people that your God-Light either makes the other persons God-Light.. brighther.. or it makes his satan-darkness... darker....  As God's Light-Bearers we are always at battle with satan.

God could have used angels or miracles or other means to give his message.  Instead he chose us.... eveyday people facing everyday problems from day to day. He wants us to share his message that there is hope beyond todays problems and frustrations.
As he helped Jeremiah (Lam. 3:1-18) he will help us.  We to can let the world know he is the Light of the World and we are called to bring His light into this dark world (Matt. 5:14-16; John 1:4-5; 1 John 1:5).

Most of all.... don't judge. Satan is going to use everyone and everything to keep us from God. He will use all of our loved ones through drugs, haterd, alcohol, bitterness, jealousy.. what ever he can use. So... when you look in the face and eyes of those people, remember it is satan using your loved one to keep your God-Light away. Pray, Pray, Pray for them.

Love Lights the Way
