Shine

Isaiah 60-62; John 1

“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you…” Isaiah 60:1
“…till her righteousness shines out like the dawn, her salvation like a blazing torch. The nations will see your righteousness and all kings your glory…” Isaiah 62:1, 2
“In him was life and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness but the darkness has not understood it.” John 1:4-5

It is the life of Jesus inside our lives that sets us apart from the world around us. We carry the light of the presence of God through His Spirit within us. People are drawn to Jesus; however, they also see our sin and the dirt of our humanity. There are many times when our fears, pride, selfishness, and sin dull the light within us so that it is barely visible to others around us. God desires that we be a torch, visible to all, blazing with His glory and light. The righteousness of Jesus and the salvation of Jesus in our lives should be visible for all to see. As we tell God’s story of salvation and deliverance through our stories of hope and love, we shine in the darkness.

Lord Jesus, may your light shine through me this day, in what I say and how I live, for your glory.

Daily Prayer Guide

Jon & Bonnie Esau
“We’re slowly but surely finding a new rhythm to life and ministry here in Chiang Mai. Please pray for Jon as he dives deeper into his resourcing role, especially that his ‘creative juices’ would flow freely and that he would be able to acquire all the resources he needs to equip our national leaders and missionaries. Pray for Bonnie as she cares for our three children, for joy and stamina and also for creativity to keep the kids occupied as they wait for school to start next month. Please pray for Callie as she starts a new school next month, that she’ll find great new friends and deepen confidence in herself as she begins Grade 1. And, please pray for a good balance between ministry and family life for us as we enter a different season of roles and responsibilities.”

For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay. ~ Habakkuk 2:3
