Light that casts out darkness.

Recently I’ve been thinking about how different Christ looks from the world. Yeah, I’ve read how we are to be lights in the darkness. However, normally I don’t visibly see that. Going to a Christian College, basically everyone around me is a believer. Now I’m working at a secular job and that’s not the case. People are lost. Jesus says “I am the way, the truth and the life.” People are missing all three.

 

God has put a huge burden in my heart for my co-workers; I love them. When I got hired I was nervous about the stress of working, but God has taught me that I’m there for Him. I’m there to be a missionary; I’m there to be a light. Once that truly sunk in, I’ve been able to just rest in the joy He has given me. I’m working with some other students from my school and seeing the contrast from their lives to the unsaved is dramatic. They do shine. People do notice a difference, there’s no way not to.

 

This has been a good reminder of not only my life at College and after, but my life here on earth. People need Christ and I have Him. I know the good news. I know the source of life. My soul is at rest because of all He has done for me. My purpose is to share that. I’m thankful for God working in my heart.
