Answering the Call to Light

Imagine a Cinderella who refused to leave her backbreaking, heartbreaking work in exchange for the beauties of the palace and, oh yeah, a handsome prince.

“No, thank you,” she says. “I rather like my rags – they have a comfortable, well-worn feel to them. Besides, who wants the pressure of being constantly looked at and evaluated? ”

Imagine an Aragorn who refused to be the king he was born to be, and left the fate of Minis Tirith (and Middle Earth) in the hands of a crazy old man.

“Go out and fight those monsters with little hope of winning? No thanks. Being a reject Ranger has gotten me this far…all that freedom…no one telling me what to do or where to go…”

Imagine a perfectly good light bulb that just didn’t want to turn on.

“All that energy and electricity flowing through me – it’s exhausting. Nope, not gonna’ be light.”

Honestly, most of us would simply toss that light bulb – for its impertinence as well as its resulting pointlessness.

Maybe these are silly examples, too impossible to even contemplate… until we realize that all too often, we are those examples… giving similar excuses for not wanting to be the lights we were called to be.

What is light? Why do we use lights? What comes to your mind when you think of light – both literal and figurative? Most importantly now, what does it mean to be God’s light to the world?

Read these verses about God being light:
2 Samuel 2:29, Psalm 4:6, 27:1, 104:2, 119:105, Isaiah 9:2, Matthew 4:16, John 8:12, 2 Corinthians 4:6 – What do that tell us about God?

Read these verses about Us being light:
Isaiah 49:1-6, Matthew 5:14-16, I John 1:7, Colossians 1:3, I Peter 2:9 – What do they tell us about who we are and/or should be?

Genesis tells us that we were made in the image of God. God is frequently referred to as light, an image that is then used to refer to those who have identified themselves with Him. As He is, so He call us and gives us the strength to be.




If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
