Light Reaching Out

April 10, 2011 Donna New

….giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness…Colossians 1:13, 14

Those who are wise shall shine as the stars. Ye are the light of the world a city set on a hill…In this dark world where there is fear and evil and lives are lived focused on Harry Potter and the Lord of the Rings and Twilight our job is to be a light. Don’t be tainted by darkness but let your light shine that they may see it and glorify your Father in heaven. Light in the Colossians verse above is described as patience long-suffering and joy. Those may not seem like powerful qualities but they are the qualities with power of eternity within.. our battle is not against flesh and blood but against the principalities….against darkness. So we fight it with the light.

There is a candle in every soul
Some brightly burning, some dark and cold
There is a Spirit who brings fire
Ignites a candle and makes His home

Carry your candle, run to the darkness
Seek out the hopeless, confused and torn
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle, and go light your world
Take your candle, and go light your world
