Message for October 29, 2017 from Pastor Shirley

1 Peter 2:9 “But you are a chosen generation a royal priesthood, an holy nation, peculiar people; that you should show forth the praises of him who has called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

   Called out darkness into his marvelous light. Once we have accepted Jesus Christ as our Savior we are now children of light. The Word tells us in Ephesians 5:8 “For you were once darkness, but now are you light in the Lord; walk as children of light.”

     It is walking in this light that we see the way to go. Jesus quite often used the contrast between darkness and light to describe the difference that Christ makes in the lives of those that believe. John 8:12 “I am the light of the world. He who follows me will not walk in the darkness, but will have light.”

     We are called into his marvelous light to proclaim the praises of him who has called us out of darkness we once were in. We have been called out of darkness to be a light of the saving power of God to those who are still in darkness.

   Matthew 5:14-16 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel but on a candlestick; and giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before me, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

    Are you letting your light shine?
