THEME FOR JULY IS “THIS LITTLE LIGHT OF MINE”

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.  Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.  In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.—Matthew 5:14-16

Do you remember the song by the Seekers, “This Little Light of Mine?” It goes like this:

“This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.
Every day, every day, every day, every way,
Gonna let my little light shine.”

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus told us not to hide our light, but to let it shine so that others may see it and glorify God.

But what is this light that we possess and can use to shine forth? “Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (John 8:12) As Christians, Jesus gives the Holy Spirit to dwell within us. That is our light. Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine!
