Live in the Light

“But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.” – John 3:21

When we live the life that God is calling us to, walking in truth and love, His mercy and grace are made evident so that He is what is seen in us, through all that we say and do.

“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” – Matthew 5:16

We are called to be genuine and transparent – not pretending to be perfect, nor ones who have it all together.  When we are really real in both our struggles and our successes, and give proper glory to God alone, His heart and help become evident, and His light is more clearly seen in and through our lives.

I want to walk living in His light, so that others too may be led to the light of His love, now and forever.  This is only possible if I am completely dependant on Christ.  On my own, the lens that allows His light to shine through me, becomes blocked.  Yet when I am surrendered solely to my Savior, it is the He in me, that others see.

Anything good that is visible in me, is only viewed because it has come from Christ.

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You are our Source of strength, and that You alone supply what we need in order to shine Your light into dark spaces.  Lead us to live in Your light of truth, so that Your heart is heard in all that we say and do.  Teach us to walk transparently before You, and lead us to love like You.  May we be Your vessels that make plain the view to Your goodness and grace for all.  Great are You, God.  Amen.
