Glow in the Dark
October 19, 2015 Christianity

glow in the darkThe world is a very dark place these days. You don’t want to be swallowed by the dark forces. What to do then? The spiritual answer is the same as for the pedestrians walking in the dark: Glow in the dark.

But how can we do that? How can we glow in the dark? There’s no way we can glow in the dark on our own. We need help. But the help is near.

When Moses came down from Mount Sinai carrying the two Tablets of The Testimony, he didn’t know that the skin of his face glowed because he had been speaking with God. Aaron and all the Israelites saw Moses, saw his radiant face, and held back, afraid to get close to him. (Exodus 34:29-30, MSG, emphasis added)

The help is near because God is always with us. In order to glow in the dark, we need to spend time with God. Because of Christ we have a direct access to God. We can interact with God in prayer anytime, anywhere. The more time we spend with God, the more we glow in the darkness.

The ways of right-living people glow with light;
    the longer they live, the brighter they shine.
But the road of wrongdoing gets darker and darker—
    travelers can’t see a thing; they fall flat on their faces.
(Proverbs 4:18-19, MSG)

When we glow, we are safe in the dark. There’s no other method of being safe in this dark world than abiding in Christ. But when we do so, we truly are safe and sound.

 

Gracious God,
We so need you.
We are lost without you.
Save us from darkness.
Make us glow in the dark.
Keep the enemies away.
Make us shine for you.
In Jesus’ name,
Amen

Q4U: Do you glow in the dark? What does help you to shine?

Be blessed, my fellow pilgrim, as you shine for Christ!
