The Light of the World

This time of the year it begins to get dark earlier and earlier. I don't know about you but for me I find that as the days grow shorter I feel gloomier during the evening. The plan to combat this effect includes multiple LED flameless candles strategically placed on the mantle and throughout the house. They are set to turn on as soon as the dawn approaches. Real candle light makes an appearance at the center of the dinner table to provide an uplifting meal time glow. Together these make a difference in brightening the house and mood. 

It is amazing the way light impacts your life. It allows you to see through the darkness and it provides a brilliant uplifting effect on the way you feel. There is nothing quite like the glow of the sun or the soft light of a beautiful candle. It is also amazing the way God sent our Savior Jesus to be the "light of the world". Nothing compares to the Light of Christ. He dissolves the darkness and illuminates the way for life's journey.

You too can be a light to others and share the glow of Christ. Right where you are there are people living in darkness. They may have things in their life that they don't want or want things in their life that they don't have. In either case, your kindness and care can brighten their way and shed light on the hope of their future in Jesus. You might introduce the light of Christ with a listening ear, kind word, small homemade gift or by just offering a helping hand. If you feel called to, bring them a few candles to brighten their home and just let them know you care. Light allows people to see their world in a whole new way. You can be the one to introduce them to the light they need to banish darkness forever.

“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
