A Light Inside of Us

Daily Thought

Your Word for
02 October 2023

Philippians 2:13
‘For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases Him.’

God wants to place His living light inside of us.

John 8:12 Jesus said to the people, “I am the Light of the world. So if you follow me, you won’t be stumbling through the darkness, for living light will flood your path.”

There is the very real possibility that as we allow God to touch and change us we can know this living light in our lives. The issue is that others should be able to see this light.

Matthew 5:15-16 Don’t hide your light! Let it shine for all; let your good deeds glow for all to see, so that they will praise your heavenly Father. (Living Bible)
Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

The issue is that we must let our light shine. We can be shining from the inside out!
If we have allowed God to touch us and change us then we in turn can have an effect and touch the lives of those around us. We cannot be an instrument of change in others lives if we have not known the change in our hearts and lives. But once we have tasted the change we can have an effect on the lives of others. The Bible tells us that we can be like salt. Salt has the ability of making something tasteless, tasty.

Matthew 5:13 You are the world’s seasoning, to make it tolerable. If you lose your flavor, what will happen to the world?

We must allow the change that God has done in us to touch the lives of those around us.
