Message: – Open Heaven 22 January 2020 Wednesday Daily Devotional
“….I am the light of the world:”
In the scripture above (John 8:12), Jesus introduced Himself as the light of the world, then turned around to say that we (Christians) are the light of the world in Matthew 5:14.
“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.”
In other words, we share similar characteristics with Jesus Christ. Now, if you have the great characteristics that Jesus Christ had while on earth, why are you hiding them?
Light is supposed to shine wherever there is darkness; why do you sometimes go in the midst of darkness and hide your light? Jesus never shied away from shining the light of the gospel on anyone that He saw living in darkness. Darkness can also mean confusion; when people are confused and do not know what step to take, they are in darkness.

When you find yourself amongst people who need direction on what next to do, you should ask God for guidance and relay what He tells you to them. Shine you light to clear the darkness. Don’t join them in being worried and confused; if you do, you are hiding your light under a bushel. The fact that you are there should give them confidence that direction will soon come, because they know you are light.
You must note however that light usually goes off when disconnected from its source. The reason many Christians have stopped shinning as light in their world is because they have lost their connection to the first Light – Jesus Christ. Once you disconnect the bulb from electricity, it will go off. Even though everyone can see the bulb and hope to get some light from it, they cannot, because it is not connected. If darkness is thriving around you, then you need to check your connection to the source. Do you still pray often? Do you still spend time studying the Bible? Do you still fellowship where the iron in other Christians can sharpen yours?
Prayer Point – Open Heaven 22 January 2020
Father, in every way that I have been disconnected from You, my source, please give me the grace to reconnect, in the mighty name of Jesus.
