Shine

Be the light in the darkness.

2 Peter 1:19

We possess the prophetic message that is altogether reliable. You will do well to be attentive to it, as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.

The prophetic message is that we are all loved by God unconditionally…so we ought to be attentive to it.

Jesus was.

He didn’t just talk about God’s love.

He showed us by the way he lived his life…healing the suffering and freeing the oppressed.

He stood up to domination systems whether in religion or government and called for fairness and change…and he did it with confidence and compassion.

In his death…he showed us that Love would not be defeated.

Death is not the end but just another beginning.

God’s love is everlasting and unconditional for all.

That is quite a Light.

It is desperately needed in this world.

We all have the ability to shine that Light…as it’s always present in the depths of our souls.

Get connected to this inner Light…and reflect it wherever you go.
