Devotional: Shine His Light
The last part of the full cycle of growth as every Christian is to give. After we learn, we live, and then we give. And we give by being the light of the world. Jesus called us to be the salt and light of the world, to shine our light in the darkness and bring hope to those around us. This means living our lives in a way that reflects Christ’s love and compassion to those around us. By our actions and words, we can inspire others to follow Christ and experience the transforming power of His grace. We can be a source of encouragement, comfort, and hope to those who are struggling or facing difficult situations. Let us remember that as we give of ourselves, we are reflecting the character of Christ and fulfilling His calling on our lives.
