Light is used to symbolise God, faith or holiness throughout scripture.
For this is what the Lord has commanded us:
“I have made you a light for the Gentiles,
that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.”
Acts 13:47 (NIV)
When you’re at school, if a teacher asks you to do something, you should do it.
When you’re working and your line manager asks you to do a task, you should do it.
If you’re in a club and the person in charge asks you to do something, you should follow their directions.
God has given us an instruction in the above bible verse, to tell others about the love and peace that can be theirs if they give their heart to God. So just as we should do what other leaders in our lives, ask us to do, so we should follow God’s instructions to share His message with those we’re in contact with.
Are you shining God’s light to those around you?
