Read Luke 11.
Spotlighted Scripture: Read Luke 11:33-36.
Do you ever feel like the only light shining amidst a room of darkness? God has not placed you in this darkness for you to conceal or hide your light. He wants you to shine and He knows that just a little light can light up a whole room. Matthew 5:16 says "In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." Our light brings God glory- it doesn't get better than that.
Verse 34 says that "when your eyes are good, your whole body is full of light. But when they are bad, your body is also full of darkness". We need to be intentional about the things we expose our minds too. Philippians 4:8 says "whatever is true, noble, pure, lovely, admirable- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy- think about such things". 2 Corinthians 10:5 tells us to "take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ". When we fill our minds, bodies and spirits with "good" things, the light in us will shine brighter and stronger, causing others to see the glory of God.
Light exposes & expels darkness.
