We are the light of the world

Philippians 2:15 AMP

That you may show yourselves to be blameless and guileless, innocent and uncontaminated, children of God without blemish (faultless, unrebukable) in the midst of a crooked and wicked generation [spiritually perverted and perverse], among whom you are seen as bright lights (stars or beacons shining out clearly) in the [dark] world,…

In the world we live today,it is sometimes very hard to be a light in the world. Racism, intolerance,wars,prejudices,violence are among the things that can slowly but surely bring us to hate someone or a group of people while we still consider ourselves Christians. The fact that we must absolutely remember is that God is love,and Jesus did nothing but love while He walked this earth. In fact, to love one another is the only commandment He gave before He returned to the Father. Our thoughts always come out at one point or another, even if it is a small comment. Jesus experienced much hate and never hated back. As a baby believer, when people judge me, lied about me and even hated me, Jesus would always tell me “Take courage,they did that to Me too”. Later I learned that God loves everybody equally so I learned not to respond or respond with kindness always remembering that fact. Do you know that for God every sin is equal and to hate is equal to being a murderer? That is what the Bible says. When people see the love we have for them, the way we accept them and the peace we have because of our full confidence in God, they want to have what we have. When we lack love, the non believers see it right away and see no need to change and to give their heart to Jesus because they think that believing did not change us so they are just right on the way they are going. Jesus called us to be the lights of this evil generation. Let’s all shine the way our Lord wants us to!
