15. 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.
16. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
OPEN HEAVENS DEVOTIONAL FOR TODAY
“…I am the light of the world:”
In the scripture above (John 8:12), Jesus introduced Himself as the light of the world, then turned around to say that we (Christians) are the light of the world in Matthew 5:14.
“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hidden.”
In other words, we share similar characteristics with Jesus Christ. Now, if you have the great characteristics that Jesus Christ had while on earth, why are you hiding them?
Light is supposed to shine wherever there is darkness; why do you sometimes go in the midst of darkness and hide your light?
Jesus never shield away from shinning the light of the gospel on anyone that He saw living in darkness.
Darkness can also mean confusion; when people are confused and do not know what step to take, they are in darkness.
When you find yourself amongst people who need direction on what next to do, you should ask God for guidance and relate what He tells you to them.
Shine your light to clear the darkness. Don’t join them in being worried and confused; if you do, you are hiding your light under a bushel.
The fact that you are there should give them confidence that direction will soon come, because they know you are light.
You must note however that light usually goes off when disconnected from its source.
The reason many Christians have stopped shining as light in their world is because they have lost their connection to the first Light – Jesus Christ.
Once you disconnect the bulb from electricity, it will go off. Even though everyone can see the bulb and hope to get some light from it, they cannot, because it is not connected.
If darkness is thriving around you, then you need to check your connection to the source. Do you still pray often?
Do you still spend time studying the Bible? Do you still fellowship where the iron in other Christians can sharpen yours?
OPEN HEAVEN 22 JANUARY 2020 PRAYER POINT:
Father, in every way that I have been disconnected from You, my source, please give me the grace to reconnect, in the mighty name of Jesus.
OPEN HEAVEN 22 JANUARY 2020 HYMNAL:
HYMN 15 – IN CHRIST ALONE
1. In Christ alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song,
This Cornerstone, this solid Ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand.
2. In Christ alone! Who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
Till on the cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live.
3. There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.
4. No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.
