The Journey with Ron Moore

 

Living Hope | Matthew 5:16 | Devotional

Matthew 5:16 In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.

This past weekend, our area was hit with twenty inches of snow! About 10:30 in the evening we were watching a movie and just like that, the power was gone. The movie was one someone loaned to us, and we felt like we needed to say we watched it. To be honest, we didn’t mind missing the rest of the movie. But we did mind the dark and the cold. Our thirty hours without power made it feel like we were back in the pioneer days, out on the prairie living by candlelight and warming up by the fireplace. We own about ten flashlights in all sizes, shapes, and colors but only one of them worked and it was a needed companion. Amazing, isn’t it, how light cuts through darkness.

Speaking to his followers, Jesus said, “You are the light of the world.” In a world rendered pitch-black by sin, believers cut through the dark and demonstrate what it looks like when the Spirit of the living God occupies the human heart. We have the great privilege and awesome responsibility to light the path that leads to the cross.

When we truly live a Spirit-transformed life, people see how we do singleness, marriage, and parenting. They watch how we do business. They observe how we handle illness, disappointment, and loss. They see how we do life. When the light of the living God shines through us, God gets all the glory. Is that cool or what?

Father, thank you for the privilege of being a light in a dark world. May we shine brightly so that you get all the glory. In Jesus name. Amen.
