Christ Calls You to Be a Light in a Dark World
As Christians, much of our joy this time of year comes from the Easter reminder of how God was willing to sacrifice himself to save us from our sins. And this is truly something to be joyful about! In fact—among all the world’s darkness—it’s one of the only things to be joyful about. But, while we praise our Savior for his grace, let’s not forget Jesus’ call for us to be a light to the world in his name. Let’s not forget to ask ourselves who Christ wants us to become now that we have been saved.
That’s exactly the question that Bible Gateway’s newest devotional is asking. Belief in Christ is a call to be active—a call to become.
The Bible is filled with statements about the kind of people God’s followers are to be and how we are to conduct ourselves in our daily lives. Even when no one is watching.
In this 5-day free email devotional, you’ll be guided through a series of Bible passages and lessons immediately applicable to your life today. “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven,” says Matthew 5:16 in the New King James Version of the Bible. In these 5-days of email content, you’ll be provided with a guidebook to the biblical ways of letting your light shine.
To some, this may sound like a challenge, especially when the world seems like such a dark place. The good news is that we’re not called to generate our own light. We’re called only to reflect Christ’s light. “In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.” (John 1:4 NKJV).
This Easter season, let us celebrate that life, for which Jesus Christ has paid. And let’s also continue to learn how to reflect the light of the God-begotten life in us.
To better learn how to do this, sign up for the 5-day Who Christ Calls You To Be devotional. With content drawn from the verse notes found in the NKJV Study Bible and written by top evangelical scholars, this is a simple and free way to expose yourself to more Scripture this week.
