homes of light

Job 38:19

The bible says :
" What is the home of light, and where does darkness live ? "

This statement seems rather easy to understand: the home of light is God's Kingdom and darkness is this world ruled by Satan.

I almost cried last Sunday during worship: my eyes got watery at some point and I had to stop singing for a sentence or two, my voice shaking. But then I didn't. Chatting with friends later on, everything sort of came "back to normal", and no one noticed my close-to-crying. I guess I felt homesick for a minute, feeling so far from the person I am meant to be, an "imitator of Christ", a "channel of grace" in this world so dark and, with time, becoming even darker. Lately, so many ideas about my service to Christ, the gifts and missions he may have given me have been rushing through me. Yet today, I felt I had no clue, all of a sudden, about where, when and how to get things started. But getting along with others for a short while, talking about everyday life, both troubles and praise, made me forget my feelings while singing that last beautiful song for the Lord.

The Lord gave us those precious commandments: love Jesus and others like you love yourself. As we read about the light, God's Word, we learn (hopefully!) to let our bodies become "home of light", for Jesus. And as we become a "home of light" for Jesus, we become "channels of grace", for this world to see God and his beautiful character.

Through us, "homes of light" for the Lord, others may be inspired to experience God's light and become homes as well. I believe, this is our mission, being ambassadors of Christ in this world: to step on and achieve this goal. Either for fellow Christians, in their growth or sliding towards the world of darkness at times or non believers living in it, we should do our best to encourage or inspire anyone to become "home of light", by acting like one ourselves.


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