“This Little Light Of Mine”

This story was taken from Bobby Awtrey’s blog.  Thank you Bobby.

“During a great storm a physician in a small town was called to go some seven or eight miles into the country to visit a sick child.  It was evening and the snow was falling so rapidly that it soon blotted out the road and left him in danger of losing his way.  Reaching a farmhouse he telephoned to the next one beyond, asking them to hang out a lantern.  They did so, and sent the word on to their next neighbor, who in turn sped the message, and so the doctor with his horse and buggy was enabled to drive forward through the storm, making his way from light to light until he reached the home where he was so sorely needed.”

Isn’t that the picture of the Christian life?  We each throw a light upon that part of the road that runs by our own door to make sure that no one misses the way.   Jesus said, “You are the light of the world.  A city on a hill cannot be hidden.  Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl.  Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.  In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”   Matthew 5:14-16

The little chorus we sing is: “This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.”  That is the task of every Christian.  We are to brighten the corner where we stand.
We shine forth with the truth and the love of Jesus to a world that lies in darkness, ignorance and sin.  What needs to happen is to ‘turn the lights on all over the world’.  The light of the life of Jesus through those of us who claim to walk in the light.

“This is the message we have heard from Him and declare to you: God is light;  in Him there is no darkness at all.  If we claim to have fellowship with Him yet walk in the darkness; we lie and do not live by the truth.  But, if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin.”      I John 1:5-7

Light shatters the darkness.  Let the light of Jesus shine through you.
