Each day we are given an opportunity to live as lights among the vastness of darkness. The darkness I speak of is not necessary evil but in reference to being alienated from truth. The questions becomes What is truth? This is a question that can be answered a number of ways. I will only provide a few words to help establish my point.
John 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ
So it behooves us that are away of truth to live as LIGHTS among the worlds, demonstrating a postive phototactic. Phototactic is defined as the movement of an organism toward or away from a source of light. There are some creatures that are negatively phototactic, thus moving away from the light. As we live this life, our job is to become witnesses not only in a verbal demonstration but in our lifestyle as well. We must live a certain lifestytle that draws other to us. It is not the us they are drawn to but the Christ that lives in us. Its his LIGHT that radiates through us…along as WE get out of the way and not becoming negatively phototactic.
Psalm 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth on the seat of the scornful.
As we realize who we are, it becomes easy to live in the grace of GOD. Thus becoming part of the kingdom equation.
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
In him(Jesus) was life; and the life was the light of men.
