June 24, 2108 LIVE IN THE LIGHT
Ever been in the dark? For some it is extremely hard to see in the dark. Usually we need some sort of light to make out small and large objects if we are attempting to walk around at night. Even the smallest light will remove the darkness so we can see. That’s how God’s word works. If we are living without God’s word, we are attempting to live in the dark. We can’t see where we are going but we go anyway. And that leads to all sorts of issues. However, if we take God’s word…even a small part of it…and apply it to our lives, we will have His Light to guide us to do what is right. And if we share God’s word, we can help others from stumbling in the darkness.
Psalm 119:105 “Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.” (NLT)
1. Write how God’s word is your light.
2. List others who need His word.
3. Get into God’s word and learn more from Him.
4. Share what you learn with others so they can grow in His light.
Dear Lord, we want to live in Your Light. We know Your word can be our guiding light if we will only read it every day. Thank You for Your word. Thank You for Your love. We are so blessed to have Your word to help us in our daily lives. Your teaching from Your word can help us in all we do. Help us to live as people of light. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
God’s word can be understood by all who truly seek Him and seek to understand.
Psalm 119:130 “The teaching of your word gives light, so even the simple can understand.” (NLT)
When we put our trust in God, we will want to live according to His word.
Learning from God’s word is important; however, just as important is sharing His word with others.
We are called to read God’s word and live as people of light.
Ephesians 5:8 “For once you were full of darkness, but now you have light from the Lord. So live as people of light!” (NLT)
