I had went to use the restroom when somebody turned the lights out. I was in the last stall at the back of the room when all of the sudden it became so black in that restroom, it was as if I could feel the darkness. I remember saying, "Lord what am I going to do now?" On my hands and knees I felt my way along the wall hoping I was going in the right direction. What seemed like hours later, which in reality was only minutes, someone opened the door and I found my way out because the light revealed the way. I don't know what they thought about me down on my hands and knees trying to find my way out of that darkened room and I didn't care. I was just glad somebody came and let the light in. There are a lot of people who live in darkness, spiritual darkness. There are people who are groping, trying to find their way out of heartache, pain, and the guilt of sins that they are living in. They do not know how to get out of the life they are living in -- they need someone to show them the way. As Chdstians we are to be beacons in somebody's night to show them the way to Christ. Jesus calls us lights. "You are the light of the world glowing in the night for all to see." Matthew 5:14 (NLT). We must not let our teslJmony be dimmed by the ways of the world about us. That's why Paul the Apostle said, %. You are to live clean, innocent lives as children of God in a dark world full of crooked and perverse people. Let your lives shine brightly before them." Philippians 2:15 (NL T). We are to be mere lights that point to the one true lighL Jesus, the Light of the world. It may be you that shows someone the way out of the dark place they are in. The truth is -- we areto let our light shine for Jesus. rm leffing my light shine, are you? You are loved, Pastor Mike Blatchley God Cares And We Care! Coldwater Assembly of God
