Salt and light. City on a hill. Light of Christ. Our Creator God made us to be light bearers. To shine hope, truth, joy and grace throughout a dark and lost world.
Here’s what I know about His light—in order to be a light bearer we have to be a light dweller. To dwell is to abide and to abide is to have everything you need without striving for more. In Christ, we are all invited to be light bearers because God, through Christ, has invited us to abide and dwell in His light.
“In the beginning God created the Heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and He separated the light from the darkness.”-Genesis 1:1-4 (NIV)
God separated the light from the dark. He sets apart the things that reflect His glory. He draws those “set-apart” things into Himself in order that they know that He is good and that in Him, they are good. There is nothing you did to turn yourself from darkness into light. He alone is able to make the transformation, and He alone chooses who to transform.
Today, can I ask you a blunt question? Where are you striving to be of “greater light”? What works are you giving all of yourself to in order to radiate that which He has already given to you in the gift of the Holy Spirit? What would happen if you were to just let Him lead and radiate through you, transforming the deepest parts of your heart in the process, and trusting that He has supplied all you need to be the brightest He’s called you to be? I can assure you that what would happen would be the molding of a true Light Bearer of Christ. Confident and content in all He is doing in your life right here today.
