When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”--St. John 8:12


You light the candle that burns so bright;
For You are the light, You are the light.
You keep it burning, all through the night;
For You are the light, You are the light.


Light from the moon, the sun and stars;
You are the light, You are the light.
Light of the world that shines on our paths;
You are the light, You are the light.


We live in a world where darkness reigns;
Still, You are the light, the light of the world.
A world filled with much sorrow and pain;
Still, You are the light, the light of the world.


Cleanse our hearts from hatred and complaints;
Shine in our hearts, shine in our hearts.
Fill us with Your love that is the light;
Shine in our hearts, shine in our hearts.

Dear brothers and sisters,


Scripture reminds us that we are treasures in earthen vessels (see 2 Cor 4:7). As followers of Christ, we are the light of the world. He shines through us to bring light to this very dark world. It is therefore, our responsibility to let our lights shine before men, that they may see our good works and glorify our Father in heaven (see Matt 5:14-16). We are His hands and feet here on earth. Let us use our mouths as mouthpieces for Him--our voices should be used as oracles for Him. Let us use our gifts to bring Him glory. Our children, friends, those we fellowship with, neighbours and workmates need to see the light of Christ shining through us.


It is the little kind deeds we do that makes a difference: a smile that reverses the outbursts of anger; not returning evil for evil but responding with good deeds and thoughts towards those who do evil unto us; giving up our right for peace sake; taking time out of our busy schedule to say hello to a neighbour or to listen to the heart of a hurting soul (it may be the complaints of your children or the members in your church) in order to resolve the problem. One act of random kindness at a time, is how we change the world.


When we sin, may we (like David, in Psalm 51) repent of our sins and seek his forgiveness, saying: “Have mercy upon me, O God…Wash me thoroughly from mine inequity, and cleanse me from my sin…Purge me with hyssop…Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.”


Stay blessed!
Your sister in Christ,
Janice (6-Sep-2013).
