Go Light Your World
A pastor in Detroit, Michigan asked the question during a sermon, “What does light mean in the life of women?” He went on to say that inner spiritual and moral transformation takes place when there is a single-minded commitment to the Lord and his will. So what does light mean and what does it have to do with love?
Well, here is my take on the question. We are called to do God’s will. This requires us to work according to our divine destiny. We are to radiate light and love in those dark corners we encounter each day. Our light and love must be seen and felt by those around us. As we do, a transformation takes place. Those hidden, distorted, crumbling, dark places of our soul gets the image and characteristics of Christ. Imagine it? A change – the true one – the real one unfolds into an anointed, sweet fragrance – a blessed altar motivating others to enter into the Holy presence of God. As a result, there is love for our neighbors( Matthew 22:39), and yes even love for our enemies (Matthew 5:44).
This “Lovelight” appear because we make a single-minded commitment to make it visible. In Philippians 4:8, scripture tells us to “Finally brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy-meditate on these things”. The world needs our “Lovelight” shining brightly, and not hidden under the rubble of today, the distractions, the chaos, or the constant dim of darkness. We need to remain focus on those things that bring light and love and stay connected to the source, so our light can shine all the more.
The world needs to see and to experience our “Lovelight” as it is connected to the source of all love – GOD!
So what does light and love mean to you today? Is your “Lovelight” showing? I hope so, because the world needs it.
