Shine Your Light

1 Peter 2:15- “It is God’s will that your honorable lives should silence those ignorant people who make foolish accusations against you. “ (New Living Translation)

Where has the time gone? Where have those with morals and values gone? How is it that our actions are dictated through our emotions, instead of our spirituality? How is it that God is nothing but a remnant or imaginary person to some? When was it cool to speak irreverently of God? When did music change from the smooth style of Marvin Gaye, to the blasphemous lyrics of Kanye West? Why do we feel because we are free, we are able to do whatever we want (1 Peter 2:16)? Who are you? Don’t you know that we are God’s children and were bought at a price (1 Corinthians 6:20)?

Therefore, what are we to do when the candlelight is enveloped in the darkness? Well friends, keep shining your light and watch others flock to your flame. Then, before you know it 1,000 flames will be burning brightly like a city on top of a hill. Amen
