2 Corinthians 4:6 (NIV)

For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.

It is only because God fills our heart with His light that we have the ability to spread the light of His love throughout this world. Don’t keep the knowledge of God’s love to yourself, share it with everyone.

Because God’s light has filled our hearts, we must always act in a manner God would expect us to. i.e. We must not be Sunday Christians or fair weather Christians, we must be everyday Christians. Only by acting as God requires us to, can we hope to influence others into sharing in the light of God’s love.

1 John 2:8-10 (NIV)

Yet I am writing you a new command; its truth is seen in him and you, because the darkness is passing and the true light is already shining. Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates his brother is still in the darkness. Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and there is nothing in him to make him stumble. But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness; he does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded him.

The world needs to see the light of God’s love. So let’s help make this world a brighter place to live by living in the light of God’s love every day.

Carry The Light

Anyone who comes to You
Anyone at all
With arms wide open
Anyone who reaches out
Any time at all
With a heart that’s broken
 
You will be the shelter
You will have the answer
For anyone who ever
Cries out
In need
I believe there You will be
 
I stand on Your promise
Your love is forever
And I believe with all my heart
You are my water
Holy savior
You are the comfort when my world falls apart
Into the ends of the earth
And for the rest of my life
I’ll carry the light
 
Anytime I turn to You
Anytime at all
I find You waiting
Waiting for the chance to help me
Hold me, heal me
Show me just how amazing
Life can be when you know what it is to be free
To be free
 
Over the mountains, into the valleys
Crossing the ocean, I’ll carry the light
And through the darkness
To all the hopeless for the all the broken I’ll carry the light
