The most powerful act of kindness and compassion is to share your faith. Jesus taught that we are the light of the world. After we believe upon the Lord Jesus Christ, Jesus moves in, darkness moves out and we are made over!
According to the Word of God, “…Old things pass away, and all things become new.” The darkness of our sins is driven out by the power of God’s Word. The new nature after salvation is represented by the light of the world!
“Jesus the light of the world…”
“Let your light shine…”
“We are to be salt and light…”
“His Word is a lamp (light) unto my path…”
Our Lord reminds us not to hide or cover our spiritual light. In VBS we sing, “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.” What’s that next line? “Hide it under a bushel? No! I’m gonna let it shine!” To allow our light to shine, we must share our faith. As we strive to be a faithful witness with a faithful life, we allow our lives to be read by those who are still living in darkness and fear, sharing a bright light! While I was preaching in a Bible Conference in Texas recently, I heard of a young lady who invited her friend to attend the conference with her. Her friend attended on Friday night and returned again on Saturday. She was broken to tears, repented, believed and trusted Jesus for her salvation. Then the two friends invited their BFF to attend the conference on Sunday, and she was saved in the Sunday night service! This is an example of the compassion of caring and the concern of sharing. Two young ladies, 22 and 24 years old, were saved because their friend shared the Light!
