“For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence. But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.”
In the middle of the darkness, “the path of the just” can light the way; because this is not just any shining light, but the Light of the World.
“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”
“I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.”
We have the Light of Christ within us, and it is up to us to shine so that others may see the glorious Light of the Gospel.
2 Corinthians 4:3-4
“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”
We shine brightest when we hold up the Word of God. The Word of Wisdom shines in our hearts and in our hands. It is His Word that makes the difference.
“That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.”
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
Shine the Light of Wisdom today.
