“Jesus Christ is the Light that dispels fear, provides assurance & direction, & engenders enduring joy & peace.” ~DAVID A. BEDNAR
I believe that David A. Bednar was completely correct in his assessment in our Savior, Jesus Christ, the Light of the World.
There is such beauty in his words especially during this season of lights and dedication and the celebration of the Greatest Gift this world has ever received. But for many, this season brings confusion, loneliness, and pain.
Let us, the Children of God, saved by the grace of God, and made to be lights in the darkness, shine brightly for our Lord drawing others unto Him, out of fear, out of confusion, into direction, joy, life, and peace.
How do we shine this light? We shine it through loving those around us, not just during this holiday season but every day, with sincerity, truth, and the same grace that saved us! How else do we behave when we have been given something special? We respond with joy and excitement, such that we want to share with others.
Let us share Christ in the ways we walk, talk, live, move and have our being in a world that is shadowed in darkness.
“The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?.” ~PSALM 27:1
We who are blessed to be Children of the Light are blessed to live without fear, with strength that is Christ. This is a gift we must and need to share with others!
