Remnant, in a world that is getting darker and darker by the hour we are called to be lighthouses for the Lord. Think about it, it is the whole reason why Jesus went up to Heaven and the Holy Spirit came down. In John 14:26 Jesus refers to the Holy Spirit as “The Advocate.”
Jesus said in John 14:6 “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one goes to the Father except through me.” He then says in John 14:12 “I can guarantee this truth: Those who believe in me will do the things that I am doing. They will do even greater things because I am going to the Father.” We, Remnant are called to shine forth the light of Christ like little lighthouses that are safety points for those that are in this dark world. He says in John 14:25 “The helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything. He will remind you of everything I ever told you.” The Holy Spirit is the light within us that shines forth and allows us to radiate the love of Christ. THIS is what we are SUPPOSED to do. THIS is HOW we are SUPPOSED to be. We are to be about our Father’s business, as Jesus was about His Father’s business. Imagine, if you will large numbers of us “shinning forth the light of Christ” in a world deceived and filled with darkness. We ARE CHRIST’s Lighthouses. How is your light shining?
Is the light of Christ within you strong? Shining brightly the Way? Are you allowing the Holy Spirit to minister to you? To strengthen you? It is not a “battery” tucked deep within you, but the Holy Spirit who brings to your heart and mind the things that you need to share with others. The things that you need to do to grow brighter in Him that has called us. The power is not anything that is within or of ourselves. It is ALL Him. The light within you is only as strong as you allow it to be! The strength is not one that comes from self but comes from Him who dwells inside of you! Lighthouses are beacons of light in the storms of life. We are called to BE lighthouses leading others to the Lord – who is the TRUE light. How bright are you shining? How proud are you standing? Is your structure built upon the One who generates the light within you? We can do nothing in and of ourselves, we are completely dependent upon He who lives inside of us without His guidance our light grows dim. The more you submit to what He is saying to you, the stronger the light of Christ radiates from your life drawing others to you so they themselves can see His light within you.
Be that beacon of light Remnant calling others home to God. Letting them know of His grace and His forgiveness and His mercy and His love. Stand tall and proud and with praise and with joy and with love help others to become lighthouses for it is not God’s will that ANY should perish, which is why He has called you by name! Recognize and rejoice that God has called you to be a beacon of His light to others, leading them to safety wrapped up in the light of His love.
Our source is HIM. Our strength is in Him. Our light is His light which radiates deep within us. The days are getting darker as it is getting closer and closer to Christ’s return. God is calling you to be a lighthouse for Him. Are you ready? Then say with me, “Shine bright within me Holy Spirit that God made be glorified! My life, my heart, my body, my soul, my being belongs to Him!”
The light of Christ which takes away the sins of the world and resides in you leading others home. No greater calling, no greater joy.
