Verse: “No one lights a lamp and then covers it with a bowl or hides it under a bed. A lamp is placed on a stand, where its light can be seen by all who enter the house.”
Insight: The good news of salvation through Jesus Christ is meant to be shared as a light to those who are walking in the darkness of sin. Charles Spurgeon writes “Every Christian is either a missionary or an impostor,” meaning if we are not letting our light shine and sharing the good news with the lost around us daily, we are living in disobedience.
Prayer: God let your light shine bright in us and through us so that those around us may come to know you and experience your wonderful gift of salvation. Thank you for sending your Son to die for our sins so that we could be forgiven and have eternal life. Help us to be obedient in sharing that good news with the lost at every opportunity. In your name, Amen.
