Topic: THE LIFE OF A BELIEVER!
Scripture adds; “…but the path of the JUST is as the shining light that shineth more and more unto the perfect day…” Proverbs 4:18
The life of a believer is from one level of glory to another. I love the way the Amplified Version puts it. It says; “…the path of the just (righteous) is like the light of dawn, that shines brighter and brighter until it reaches its full strength and glory in the perfect day”. Hallelujah!
One distinctive peculiarity of the light is that, it does not struggle to shine, and it also gives direction. As a matter of fact, it shines more in the dark. In the Gospel of John, Jesus is called “the true light, which gives light to everyone” (John 1:9). Throughout the New Testament, the followers of Jesus are called to be lights in the darkness.
In Matthew chapter 5:16, Jesus said, “Let your light shine before others”. Observe carefully, that wasn’t the whole sentence. He went on to give the reason why it is important to shine: “so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
So, Jesus used the metaphor of Light and Salt to reflect the life of a Believer. As a believer, we are meant to give light in the dark world and hope in a hopeless world. And as salt, we are meant to preserve the world from decadence; being it moral or spiritual. Hence, it is your duty to shine forth in the Church, office, business, and your relationships so that the world will see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Glory to God!
Prayer: Oh God let my life move from one level of glory to another in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
