For your light has come!
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
2 For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
And deep darkness the people;
But the Lord will arise over you,
And His glory will be seen upon you.
3 The Gentiles shall come to your light,
And kings to the brightness of your rising.”
Isaiah 60:1-3 (NKJV)
As we watch the events of this nation and the world, it is easy to get discouraged. It seems everywhere we turn, there is darkness. Evil seems to be winning, overcoming good. It seems like there is always a tragedy or catastrophe, an earthquake, a tornado, hate group on the rise, war, incurable virus, biological weapons, unrest, political turmoil leading to war, death. Darkness is increasing, deep darkness is covering people of all genders, ages, races, political affiliations, social-economic status.
But is there a solution to all of it? Yes.
Where is the solution? Inside you and me.
Shocking, but true.
The HOLY SPIRIT of GOD living inside each of us is the solution. I would question GOD many times and ask, “Why?” Why would HE choose to use simple, small, insignificant people like us to combat such gross, deep darkness? Then I realize that HE is asking us to carry HIS solution to the world, not to be the author of that solution.
Our GOD wants us to take the mind of CHRIST we have access to (1 Corinthians 2:16), and to take the love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control, produced in each of us by HIS HOLY SPIRIT (Galatians 5:22-23) into the world.
When we feed the hungry, give clean water to the thirsty, provide shelter for perfect strangers, visit the sick, pray for and care for those in prison, we are implementing GOD’s solution on the earth (Matthew 25:35-40). Your participation through your gifts of love make this possible. Thank you.
But do not stop there. Be the light in the world around you. Be the voice of loving hope and change in your sphere of influence, your sub-world. Help those who need it, and do not turn away from your neighbor. Share the GOD news of JESUS CHRIST in word and in action.
Imagine if everyone did this. Evil would be completely overcome with GOD.
Let us all continue to shine the light of the glory of GOD in our sub-worlds, so everyone can find their way to CHRIST by it. Amen.
