For The Real You

Walkin’ In The Light?

Psalm 119:105
” Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.”

Scripture defies the darkness and it’s pages exude references to the radiance of Christ, the Light of the World. John 8:12, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

During the Festival of Shelters, sixteen golden bowls were filled with oil and lit. Jesus stood beneath them in the inner courts of the temple, in a section known as the Treasury, John 8:20 and said that He was now the source of the Light.

The Light of Jesus brings salvation, not just to Israel, but to us, the world, regardless of who we are, race or location. As Christ Ones abiding in His words, in obedience to His perspective and guidance we will not only walk in His beautiful light, we ‘become’ as light reflecting the radiance of Christ in our character. Phil 2:14,15.
Let’s be honest and ask ourselves a point-blank question. Is our light shining? Is it radiantly obvious in our actions? In our behaviours? In our countenance? Is it shining forth to light up the dark corners for others or do the batteries weaken somewhat as life happens and takes us with it? Yeah, maybe we need to recharge before the God of our salvation and the Christ who stood under the sixteen golden bowls of oil lighting the temple and point-blank stated in John 8:12, “I am the light of the world. If you follow Me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.” NLT Study Bible.

Philippians 2:14, “Do everything without complaining and arguing. So that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives, as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people.”
