 DO YOU HAVE THE LIGHT OF CHRIST WITHIN YOU ?

As the single light glowing on a porch ceiling
  When the darkness of night fills the shadows
The insects fly around and around its glow
  Wishing only to touch but knowing better.

So we are drawn to light from darkness
  Like the sight of windows aglow coming home
Signaling a place of warmth, security, and love
  After a wearing day of working for our needs.

Few like to dwell in darkness and avoid it
  So can we say with assurance that light
And the searching for light is a good pass time
  For an earthly person like you and me.

But we have spoken about physically seen light
  Is there another kind? If so what kind of light?
It is the spiritual light of Christ aglow
  Fed by the Holy Spirit in His followers.

The physical world does not see this light
  But it is a beacon of light for the hurting,
Yes, it is a homing device gathering
  Those hungry for God or in deep need.

For those persons who carry Christ's light
  Are indeed blessed in a special ministry
To the souls who are drawn to them
  Seeking to know God better and have soul rest.

So pray daily that the light in Christ
  Yes, that invisible light to the unlighted
Will shine out reaching to the souls
  To approach you for spiritual nourishment.

Let your life be seen by those you know
  As a beacon they would like to follow
And wonder not why your help is sought
  By the soul who is facing a trauma.

So be diligent in helping those persons
  Who God causes to seek your aid
For it is indeed a wonderful ministry
  For you, a soul seeking to do God's work.

John 8:12 Jesus said to the people, "I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won't be stumbling through the darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life."NLT

Matt 5:13-16 You are the light of the world — like a city on a mountain, glowing in the night for all to see. Don't hide your light under a basket! Instead, put it on a stand and let it shine for all. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father. NLT
