Welcome to our service today. It is great to have you here and we would love to invite you to stay after the service and join us for tea and coffee.
For many people, this world is a dark place. They feel lost, lonely and helpless, They need somewhere to turn for guidance and hope. Jesus understood this need so He made a way to counteract the darkness. He tasked His followers with providing the necessary light for the world. The good news is that we’re not called to generate our own light, but instead to reflect Christs light.
The temptation to hide our light can be powerful. When we shine our light we can be seen – and some don’t appreciate that. They try to knock us over, accuse us falsely or even say things to our face. This can sow doubt in our lives, but we must remain strong and true to our calling in Jesus. The best way to do this is to draw near to Jesus. The closer we are to Jesus, the stronger our light is and the firmer we will be able to stand our ground.
The rewards of shining our light can also be powerful. Our light may be the only source of illumination some people have. By reflecting Jesus’ glory and pointing the way to Him, we have the potential to change their lives forever.
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matt 5:16)
With love & blessings,
