Daily Readings — The Light of His Presence!

Day 2045: Another Friday! A great time for TGIF – Thank God I’m Forgiven!!!

Scripture:  Come, house of Jacob, and let us walk in the light of the LORD. Isaiah 2:5   But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin! I John 1:7

Thoughts/questions: Just recently I was sitting in a restaurant and at the end of the aisle was a large window with the sun shining brightly through it. People were walking toward me down that aisle, but their presence was overwhelmed by the light! I could see a shadow figure coming, but could not see the front of them at all!

What an illustration of the light of Jesus overwhelming us. The light of His presence should dominate our being. Those looking at us shouldn’t ‘really’ see us, but should see a mere shadow of one who is walking in the light of Jesus!

Yes, we’re still there, but it is not we who live but Christ who lives in and through us! May His countenance be upon us in such a fashion that His light dominates as it shines all around us!

Suggested prayer: Father God, You are light and in You there is no darkness at all. Let Your light shine brightly to those I encounter . . .
