Oh Lord, help us to know and understand Your will. Each one of us has different talents that can be used for Your kingdom. These Spiritual gifts can be used to light up the world. The sad thing is, this world is so dark and to find people in the faith lighting up their surroundings is hard to find. Have people forgotten that we are to shine brightly and not let our lights go dim? Or do people not know these verses in the Bible because they don’t read it often or not at all? Surely, surely, on the day of judgment many people will say Lord, haven’t I done all these many things in Your Name, and then You will say to them, I never knew you, depart from me. I fear that this is going to happen to more people that say they are Christian than not. But this doesn’t have to happen to people in our generation. Lord, wake people up to know You personally. Then, will they begin to light up the world and to love and serve You with all their hearts. Amen.
Numbers 8:1-4 (KJV)
1 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
2 Speak unto Aaron and say unto him, When thou lightest the lamps, the seven lamps shall give light over against the candlestick.
3 And Aaron did so; he lighted the lamps thereof over against the candlestick, as the Lord commanded Moses.
4 And this work of the candlestick was of beaten gold, unto the shaft thereof, unto the flowers thereof, was beaten work: according unto the pattern which the Lord had shewed Moses, so he made the candlestick.
We are the light of the world and therefore we shine brightly before God and man. This way more people will come to God.
