You are the light of the world...

This week I am participating in the Bladen Mission Project. This is an important week of making the Love of Jesus Christ real and tangible in Bladen County. This week's prayers were written for the mission project's daily devotions.  I invite you to pray along with us!

Jesus said:
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.” Matthew 5: 14-15

This verse refers to us, as followers of Jesus Christ,
going out and spreading His word.
When we are filled with the love and joy that He gives us,
it is impossible to keep those feelings hidden.
We should spread His light to others
so that they can feel this overwhelming love and joy
that we have felt because it is such an amazing experience.

Make a list of those who have shared God’s light with you.

Remember a time when you felt the “overwhelming love and joy” of God.
Share that story with someone.

Today, Lord,
I will have many
opportunities to be your lamp
and to share your light.
Help me to burn brightly!
