Darkness is coming! Darkness is covering the whole earth. Darkness is coming from Rome to the USA. Darkness is shadowing the whole world. Darkness is a blight on people everywhere. Darkness is covering us like a blanket. What are we to do?
It is like a thirst that cannot be quenched. You can drink and drink, and still you remain thirsty. What is to be done? People everywhere are dying of thirst, but cannot find a drink of water anywhere.
John 4:13 Jesus said, Come to me you who are thirsty, and I will give you water to drink. The water I give will not leave you thirsty for more.
What about the darkness, you ask? Jesus said, "I am the Light of the world. In me is no darkness."
We murder millions of babies every year. Think of that! Millions of children who will not grow up. Millions of children who will not know the love of a Mother or Father! Millions of children who will not know the love of Grandparents. That is so sad!
We murder each other at an alarming rate. Young people who will never know the forgiveness of their Heavenly Father! Condemned to hell for all eternity. Older people who will lose the love of their family. Family who will mourn for them. Mourn for them because they don't know Jesus!
Darkness covers them like a blanket, and they seek drugs to help them! They are blind to the drug lords that are getting wealthy on their backs. The drug lords are living a high life-style while the users are just getting high! The users will probably die while getting one last high! All because they didn't know or care about the one who can really get them high, Jesus!
What are we to do? As Christians we are the light that shines in the darkness! We are to let our light shine as never before. We need to let our light shine, not under a basket! We need to let our light shine as never before. Do you know that a candle that shines in complete darkness lights up the whole darkness as never before? That candle shines like there is no darkness. You can shine like there is no darkness! Your little candle can shine if only you will let it. If you witness to one person a week, no matter what you say to that person, God can use that word of encouragement to light a person's life!!
Don't you want to save at least one person from an eternity in hell? All you need to do is let your light shine! Let it shine like it's never shone before. Life is short! Eternity is forever! I can use all kinds of clever phrases, and still words can have little meaning. If you use that mouth of yours to encourage someone, to let them know how much Jesus really loves them and doesn't want them to go to hell to become condemned forever, then let your light shine.
We will all stand before God in judgement for all we said or did. It's called the Judgement Seat of Christ. Our name is found in the Lambs Book of Life, so we will not be condemned. We will be judged on whether we were faithful or not. Whether we used the talents He gave us properly! Don't be like the foolish one who went and buried it!
"This little light of mine, I'm gonna' let it shine. Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine." Mat 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
