One source of light, no matter how feeble, no matter how poor its illumination may be, it will make difference in the midst of darkness. This is the mystery of creation of light. It’s no wonder that light was first created in order that it will make difference among all other creatures. True to this fact, every creature relishes the presence and power of light. Light provided illumination to the world. Light is also the main source of energy in some cases. The plants cannot do without light for the purpose of photosynthesis. Man and other animals that are active and can effectively operate during the day depend upon the light of the day to do their businesses. All over the world people still need electric light in the night, in the streets, in the hospitals and in the other strategic security points, etc. Just before we finally rest in the comfort of our beds to sleep, we need light in our rooms to see the environments of our rooms.

Similarly, the situation of a sinful man is like a highly intelligent man that found himself locked up in ignorance and operating in darkness. This was the deplorable life of mankind before Jesus came to this world. In His sermon on the Mount, Jesus Christ said, “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.” (Matthew 5:14-16) It takes someone that dwell in the light to know the characteristics of light. He is the light according to John 1:4-5, In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.” [Jesus Christ] was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 

One source of light will make difference in the midst of darkness. One woman of Samaria at the well reached out to others to meet with Jesus Christ in order that they may receive salvation. One Centurion choose to live righteously, he brought salvation to his household. One Saul of Tarsus encountered Jesus Christ on his way to Damascus, he took the message of the Gospel to the world of Gentiles. One Pentecostal experience of the apostles transformed the ministry of the Apostles and the Church of Jesus Christ sprang up.

You are the light of the world. Your characters, your utterances and your daily righteous and kind interactions you exhibited towards mankind denotes the light. There are abundant doors of opportunity awaiting your  spiritual deft touch. Endeavor to make a difference and light your world with the love of God by reaching out to the perishing world. Evangelize the world with the gospel of love, gospel of mercy and gospel truth that we received from our Lord Jesus Christ so that humanity can reconcile with God. Intercede and stand in gap for the tumultuous world in prayer that divine intervention of God may prevailed. The Prodigal sons will surely return to their fathers home at your faithful efforts. They will find peace with God and you will find joy in your faithfulness. May the power of the light of God in your life brighten the darkness of your surroundings, so that the world may once again behold the beauty of the glory of God, in Jesus name, Amen.

Prayer: Oh Lord, let me reflect the beauty of your glorious light in my love towards humanity, in my utterances of encouragement, and in my prayer for the salvation of humanity. Let me be able to live for your glory in my day to day relationship with mankind, in Jesus name, Amen.
