You Are Light
Are you the type of person who is afraid to share about Christ to other people? Are you afraid that if you shared your faith that you might offend some people?
Matthew 5:14-16 NKJV
“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lamp stand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
When you become a Christian Jesus says that you ARE LIGHT. Before you became a Christian you were in darkness, but when you became born again, you become the “light of the world” because of Jesus who is in you.
The world is in darkness; the world’s philosophies, the world’s doctrines, the world’s direction are all in a state of darkness. However every born again Christian has the answers to the world’s problems through the word of God and also because Christ Jesus is in us.
Light was never created so that it could be hidden. Light was created to remove the darkness. Therefore when you became a new creation in Christ, you became God’s light to the world, so that you may reveal and expose the darkness that is in the world.
Therefore don’t be ashamed of the gospel of Christ. You ARE light.
Don’t be afraid that you might offend someone. You ARE light.
Remember that whenever you speak to somebody about the gospel – it is to the glory of God because it is God’s gospel.
Luke 9:26 NKJV
For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed when He comes in His own glory, and in His Father’s, and of the holy angels
When you became a born again Christian, it was because God used somebody; a person who wasn’t ashamed to share the gospel to you.
Therefore you too have the ability to be used courageously by God to share the gospel without fear or shame to an unbeliever. Because you are light, you have the privilege of impacting somebody’s life to the glory of God through Christ.
2 Timothy 1:7 NKJV
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
The most common reason why some Christians do not share the word of God with unbelievers is fear. However, the Holy Spirit will help you to walk in power, a sound mind and to be motivated in your actions by love.
From today, don’t be afraid to share with an unbeliever about God.
