FIREFLIES           8-8-2017

Remember when you were a child, on a Summer's eve outdoors, the fireflies (lightening bugs) flew up from the grass and did their magic? How exciting! Remember catching them in a Mason fruit jar and putting it by your bed to watch them light up during the night?

Jesus tells us, "You are the light of the world" (Matthew 5:14). Jesus mixed with all types of people--prostitutes, publicans, sinners, etc. We should be willing to go and do likewise. As Christians, followers of Jesus the Christ, we should not fear going into a bar, sitting down and ordering something to drink, and let the Holy Spirit do His work--shine His light on all who are there. If we are born again and Spirit-filled, then we bring Christ's light into all the dark places. (Ever notice how bugs are attracted to a porch light at night?)

We don't have to preach the gospel there, we are the gospel, the good news they want and need; they just don't know it. If someone asks us about the light emitting from us, then we can easily share the Source. Go and shine your light everywhere!
