Day 9: Let Our Love Shine His Light

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in the darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12 (NIV)

Good morning!

When I walk down the hallway in the morning and plug the Christmas lights in, they sparkle so perfectly in the darkness. As the strands lay in the greenery, they extend light out into the stillness of our home. It makes me think of Jesus, the one who is the light of the world. The one who came in the darkness to bring a great light.

Jesus came in the form of a tiny baby, but his purpose was to be the biggest light in the world. He walked perfectly and blamelessly to show us how to walk in this world and shine as His light to others.

Are we letting the light of Jesus shine through us?

Part of shining his light is to show love and extend grace. As people we are often going to fall short in our attempt to be like Jesus every day and shine His light in every situation. However, are we willing to open our hearts and allow the Ultimate Light to shine through us, even when it’s hard?

Let’s be willing to let the Father use us to shine his light – to bring hope to someone in need, to shine a light on their situation, and to show others that they are loved and that they have value.

There is no better time than Christmas to shine His light.
