“This Little Light Of Mine”

Recently, I was talking with someone about their life mission. This person said, “My mission is to bring light into the dark world of……(they referred to an industry).” Each one of us have the same mission… that’s our task… to bring light into a dark world.
Darkness and light.
They are metaphors for sin and Christian living.
Darkness represents sin. This world is filled with darkness… but Jesus brings light into the world.
John tells us, “…God is light, and there is no darkness in him at all. So we are lying if we say we have fellowship with God but go on living in spiritual darkness; we are not practicing the truth. But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin” (I John 1:5-7).
So John is telling us that if we say we are christians and love the Lord yet, we continue to live in darkness then our lives have not changed. Someone may say, “Well, I asked Christ into my heart… I believe I’m a Christian… but I still slip and sin…” I hear you and so do I. I think the key here is STAYING in darkness.
Darkness represents sin. We are all human. We all have flaws. We all slip at times. But we shouldn’t stay there.
So, are you living in the light? Are you bringing light into a dark world? We should be. You may have a job that you don’t care for… You have prayed for God to move you. God may have you there because He is using you to bring light into a dark world.
Remember, Jesus called us to be “the light of the world” (Matt. 5:13-16). Our job… our purpose… is to be light… and take it into a dark world.
“This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine.
This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine.
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.”
