Light of Christ: 2 Corinthians 4:5-6

Remember, our Message is not about ourselves; we’re proclaiming Jesus Christ, the Master. All we are is messengers, errand runners from Jesus for you. It started when God said, “Light up the darkness!” and our lives filled up with light as we saw and understood God in the face of Christ, all bright and beautiful.

2 Corinthians 4:5-6 (MSG)

In Paul’s writing to the Corinthians, he explains that the Message he brings in not about him. He is only a messenger of Jesus Christ the Lord. In the beginning, God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. (Genesis 1:4). To fill our lives with His light, God gave us His Son, Jesus Light of the World, and the light of eternal life. From Christ’s face, God’s glory shines bright and beautiful. With Jesus as our Light, we never will walk in spiritual darkness. His true light illuminates our hearts, encouraging us to spread spiritual light, the Word, to others.

Our message is not about ourselves. It is about Jesus Christ as the Lord. We are your servants for his sake. We are his servants because the same God who said that light should shine out of darkness has given us light. For that reason we bring to light the knowledge about God’s glory which shines from Christ’s face.

2 Corinthians 4:5-6(GW)

Are you illuminated with the light of Christ?

Prayer; Our Heavenly Father, we thank you for filling our lives with the light of Christ. May our paths be illuminated by Christ, the Light of the World. May His glory shine brightly in our hearts. Like the petals of the geranium glow in the sunlight, help us to glow with Your light. In Jesus’ holy name. Amen

    1. Thanks, Tina! This geranium was on my front porch last year; as you said, it was a refreshing splash of color all summer. Light; was my word of the year last year. Light radiates, reflects, glows, and illuminates the darkness. Light and Love! πŸ’—πŸŒŸπŸŒ·πŸŒžπŸŒΊ
