One other thing…what happens if you are your friend’s only source of light but your lightbulb is either burned out or just turned off? Nothing. Your friend would still be in the dark. It’s so important that we have our light on at all times. You never know when your friend will be looking for answers concerning how to connect with Jesus Christ.
God wants to place your lightbulb in the midst of people who don’t know Jesus so that they can see how to find Jesus. Without your light, many of the people you have relationships with will remain in the dark. Do you realize that you may be the only lightbulb your friend would get close enough to be able to see?
1. Am I one of God’s lightbulbs? You can’t shine a light in the darkness until you have received Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. That’s something you’ll want to settle now if you haven’t already.
2. Is my light bulb around others who need the light? If all you do is spend time with other lightbulbs (Christians) then those who most desperately need the light will live in the dark. Make it a point to spend time with others who need the light.
