The Light of the Body

The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing in the heart;

The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening

the eyes. Psalm 19:8

Life Question: What Light Do We Carry With Us?

Happy Saturday Everyone! All this week I've been reading

Luke 11:33-36, The Lamp of the Body bible passage. So what

is the lamp of our bodies?? IT'S OUR EYES! Think about it, can

you tell someone's a believer of God just by looking in their


What would that look like to a believer or even a nonbeliever?

Those who follow Jesus, you can just tell because they are not

afraid to share their faith with others, they're not afraid to tell

others about how God helped them in a particular situation

and they're not afraid to tell them of times when their faith in

God was tested and how they endured their trial and came

through it with an even stronger belief and relationship with

Jesus. A nonbeliever might not know what you were referring to,

they might not understand how Jesus is the beacon in our lives

and how his truth is what illuminates our each and every one of

our life paths he predestined for us and how us living with him in

eternity is all he wants for us.

Sadly, this testimony is discouraged for the following reasons:

*It will offend someone

*It's not 'politically correct'

*Reliance on the world for security and fulfilling our needs

We know better than that! I saw it firsthand when I was

a soprano in The Travelin' Shoes Gospel Choir a few years

back. We performed all over Minnesota and Wisconsin spreading

the message of Jesus. And were well received by most everyone!

Yes, even at our concerts some were naysayers. The thing is.....WE

KEPT TESTIFYING! As Luke 11:33-36 teaches us, "No one, when he has

lit a lamp, puts it in a secret place or under a basket, but on a

lampstand, so that those who come in may see the light," and as

the song goes, "This Little Light of Mine, I'm Gonna Let it Shine!"

So do not hide your lamps under a basket, KEEP IT ON YOUR
