When you study the Bible, you are faced with two choices:
1.) to believe that is was written by mad people or
2.) to accept that it is the voice of God.
Jesus asked His disciples a very pertinent question. He asked them if a person can light a candle and hide it under a basket. In other words, Jesus was saying that everyone who is born into the kingdom is a light and God cannot send the light into the world and hide it under a bucket.
Mark 4:21 “ Also He said to them, “Is a lamp brought to be put under a basket or under a bed? Is it not to be set on a lampstand?”
He was in a way saying that they should be shinning. If a believer is not shining; it means demons have covered his/her light.
You were born for greatness. You were not born to suffer. You were born to be the head and not the tail. The story of your life is written in heaven. It is time to take authority and cast out those demons over your life. You are the light of your office. You are here to show forth the glory of Him who has called you from darkness to His marvellous light. Shine the light today. You are not here for nothing.
Father; I am the light of the world. I am here to shine and show forth the beauty of He who has called me from darkness to His marvellous. I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ. Use me this month to win the lost at any cost in Jesus name. Amen.
