Light is used for one to see one's way in darkness. Light allows those who are in darkness to see their way. The Earth is in darkness because of man's rebellion against God, His principles and laws. When Adam and Eve sinned, they did not sin for themselves alone, but, from their privileged position as the first, originally sinless couple, act as representatives for the entire human race. Since then sin, sinfulness, and the consequences of sin have marred all of us and plunged our world into darkness and under the power of Satan. Into this darkness, God sent His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to give light to it. Those who follow Jesus Christ have Him and therefore they have the light that dispels the darkness of sin in this world. True believers and followers of Jesus Christ are given the following two responsibilities:
Provide spiritual light in the great darkness of sin and ignorance by teaching and example
Carry and spread light of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God all over the world so that many would turn from the darkness of sin and spiritual ignorance to the marvelous light of divine grace.
True believers and followers of Jesus Christ are admonished to ôlet your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father." "As nobody lights a lamp only to cover it up, but places it so conspicuously as to give light to all who need it, so the true believers and followers of Jesus Christ, being the light of the world, must do. Instead of hiding their light, the true believers and followers of Jesus Christ must be shining examples of holiness in the darkness so that they who live in darkness may see what lives they lead, and seeing this, may glorify their Father for so redeeming, transforming, and ennobling earth's sinful children, and opening to themselves the way to like redemption and transformation.

A good explanation of the true Light and how this is reflected to the world for all to see.

Editing is needed for paragraph spacing and always double check punctuation and spelling for easier reading.

Keep writing and writing and write some more!

I have to say my favorite part of this entry was your use of "ennobling". Thank you for sharing.

Well-thought out devotional.

It will help your readers if you space your paragraphs. Perhaps you might include an example of how, specifically, Christians can be light in a dark world? Many readers relate better to anecdotal accounts.

Thanks for this entry!

Insightful.

It would have been even better by using a parable to better illustrate your point.

Thanks for sharing it. Keep writing!

It would have been helpful to use paragraphs to split this peice up and make it easier to read.
