Let Your Light So Shine 

NOVEMBER 20 & 21, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Proverbs 20:27 The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    Have you ever thought about how much light one little match can give off in a very dark room? On special occasions our church has had a candlelight service to highlight a special part of the service. Often, we have begun with the sanctuary dark and just one person lighting one candle and then passing that flame on to another, then another, and so on until everyone in the room has the candle they are holding burning brightly. However, in a dark room just one little match seems so very bright. With all the other candles ablaze, that one little match does not seem to carry such a glow. However, let everyone blow out their candles and then strike that match, and it seems to light every inch of the room. The brighter the room, the less the light of the match shows.

    So it is with our life. If we keep ourselves clean from the sins of this world and watch how we live our lives, the candle of the spirit does not seem to make a glaring show as God searches our hearts. However, let sin come into our lives and the brightness which has been burning as a candle of God’s character which He has placed in you seems dim, or even to have been blown out. It is during those times in our lives that the searching candle of God seems blinding bright as it searches our heart and finds darkness there.

    Sin blows out the candle of love as sin only thinks of itself and not others. Sin blows out the candle of peace as it causes uneasiness in our lives. Sin blows out the candle of joy as it robs from us the joy we once had when walking close to God and other believers. Sin causes our life to be dark, dreary, and lonely. Our verse in Proverbs 20:27 says the spirit of man is the candle which God uses to see into the heart of man and expose the darkness to drive it away. What does God see in you today?

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    As God searches your heart, will you allow Him once again to light up your life? Doing away with greed and selfishness and once again lighting the candle of love. Finding the peace and joy you once had and allowing God to light those areas of our life again. Let Jesus be the Light of Your Life.

WHAT TO DO ON SUNDAY:

    There will not be a Daily Devotion sent out on Sundays. Instead, we encourage you to attend your church and listen intently to what God has prepared in the heart of your Pastor. Write down all the scriptures he uses in that message, then when you get home re-read those passages for today’s reading. God has given to your Pastor exactly what He desires for you on that day.
