It’s been said, “if you were put on trial for being a Christian, would their be enough evidence to convict you?” Think on that for a while. You are on trial; one lawyer tasked to produce evidences from you’re daily life showing undeniably that you are a servant of God and an other tasked to produce evidences that, in reality, you are not. Would it be an open and shut case? Do your everyday works and character show forth the light of God to others? If so, could that light shine brighter? Especially in the darkest of places?
While humility is a virtue and meekness to be desired, that is only to be applied toward self and not toward God. Don’t allow the enemy to twist your good virtues against you and cause you to smother the flame of God burning in your life. Remember, light by it’s very nature is meant to be seen, don’t hide it.
Lord help us to grow closer to You everyday. Let us never stop examining our walk with You and strive to strengthen it constantly. Help us to see the tactics set against our emotions by the enemy that seeks to cause us to react in ways unseeming of a representative of You, rather teach us how to be more like you, that we may be a good and true reflection of the One scripture calls “The Light of the World?”
“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” – John 8:12
-Jesus’ words to His followers-
“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” – Matthew 5:14-16
