    One of them, a lawyer, asked him a question, testing him. 'Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?' Jesus said to him, 'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. A second likewise is...

    Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, 'How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, that murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me. Tell them, As I live, says Yahweh, surely as you have spoken in my ears, so will I do to you' N...

    Elijah said to him, Elisha, please wait here, for Yahweh has sent me to Jericho. He said, As Yahweh lives, and as your soul lives, I will not leave you. So they came to Jericho. 2 Kings 2:4 WEBElisha had worked serving the prophet Elijah for several years when he suddenly asked him to stay behind. E...

A Light in The Darkness

  • Arise, shine; for your light has come, and Yahweh's glory has risen on you. For, behold, darkness will cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but Yahweh will arise on you, and his glory shall be seen on you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. Isaiah 60:1 WEB

    Nightfall came faster than I was anticipating and it was black night as I made my way through the swamp. Normally, the moon would be out, but it was overcast and the thick trees above snuffed out everything, and I had brought no light with me. I was about thirteen years old, and the eerie sound of frogs, crickets and whatever that was lurking behind me were terrifying. Finally I made it out of the woods and I could see the light of home in the distance. It was the most welcoming sight and I was so happy to see it.

    A small candle sitting in the sunlight at mid-day is hardly noticeable. If you back away even a few feet it will begin to blend in with the surroundings and the light of the sun. It would seem insignificant, like there was nothing to be seen there. But if you were to look at that same candle in black darkness, it would shine like it was sent by God.

    As this world grows darker and darker, your light will shine brighter and brighter to those around you. For some people, YOU are the only light that they will ever see and God will use you to draw them. You may think that your light is only a small flicker, but to someone in total darkness, you may be the most welcoming sight they have ever seen and carry the word of God that sets people free from the darkness. Keep that fire stoked, it is going to be needed.

    Prayer: Father, let me carry Your fire, fill me with Your Holy Spirit and let me be a light house to those in the darkness. Put Your words in my heart and bring all things to my remembrance. Speak to me and through me, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Amen! I was so blessed by a conversation with my bestie yesterday.... Seems I led her to know God! Wow! I never knew! I fight anxiety and depression so I don't always feel like a bright light! But she made me realize that my and my husband's strong faith, our never giving up on hope and prayer was indeed a light to be seen! What an awesome blessing to know you helped to bring someone closer to God and that it was my best friend makes it all the more special<3  Thank you for this great reminder that even when we may be feeling dim we can be a bright light for someone else! Never loose faith! God walks with us even in the dark! He leads us to his light! And if we are faithful, he lets us shine for others! Pastor's Prayer: Father, let me carry Your fire, fill me with Your Holy Spirit and let me be a light house to those in the darkness. Put Your words in my heart and bring all things to my remembrance. Speak to me and through me, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Hello everyone! Dion, I love this verse, it took me so long to understand that religion had taught me that I had to shine. But, that is not what Isaiah is saying here, he says that Yahweh will cause us to shine because we have spent time with Him. I am so glad that I do not have to shine my own light, Yahweh will do even that for me!

Amen! In order to be a light to others we need to constantly stoke the fire of the Holy Spirit. We cannot let the distractions of this world take us away from our daily Bible study and devotions. In the midst of this chaotic world we need to anchor our souls in His Word. Then and only then as we feed our spirits His living water can we show others Christ in me.

Praise God!! This is the same scripture God gave me this morning when I read my Bible!! I believe He is preparing me for when I go back to work on Wednesday. You see, I "pulled " a muscle in my leg ,so the doctor said I needed a week off to heal. God knows when we need a time away from the battle. So the theme for me this week has been to let His light shine before men and He is strengthening me to do that!! Your message on Sunday morning was very edifying to me and I like the fact that the same Holy Spirit in you is in me also!!

A light in the darkness; many blessings to everyone on the 4th to look at the fireworks in a way to see his light shine brightly through you in your approach to each person you interact with today.  

Thank you Pastor Dion for a beautiful message; I've been working a lot of hours the last couple weeks so have been missing the message each morning.  But listening to Christian radio 97.9 helps to keep the focus.

JESUS CHRIST is the light of the world.  My light of HOPE a few days ago starts to get dimmer and dimmer but I prayed so hard that JESUS CHRIST would please brighten my light of HOPE be as bright as it can be.  And our LORD GOD did light my HOPE way more brighter than before.
