“You are the Light of the world, like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.”
How often do we take our individual significance for granted? Have you thought about your significance in the world today; How you can effect every person you meet, talk to and make eye contact with? Have you considered that Gods power shines through you with every contact, every thought and every interaction?
I know at times I take for granted the impact I may have, or have had to any given person or interaction. I pass it off as just part of my human functioning and go about my day. It is only when I stop, or get stopped by a message, that I have a bit of a realization that I DO matter, in more ways than I likely know or realize. When I say I DO matter, it is not of self worth, it is more about the impact….that through my actions and reactions, through my words or lack of, people may or may not see the Holy One. I am a Child of God, therefore, my actions reflect His…..IF I follow His guidance.
Matthew speaks of our importance in the world in this way. If we are to accept it, we can be like a castle on a hilltop that cannot be hidden, we can shine light and the love we see, and thus, shine the eyes of God to all who will see.
I got a sweet note from a friend today who has transformed her life from a non believer into one who looks for Gods messages. She wrote a little note to say thank you for my effort to helping her to listen to and for Gods voice. It wasn’t so much I felt any pride, it was a feeling of so much humility that I could influence another to find God, to hear Him speak, to attend to His messages. For a few seconds I simply sat reading, amazed at the feeling tingling inside of me. It was a God moment, as I call it….and I am thankful I was attentive enough to hear it.
All this, brings me to this message today. As we traverse this world, this land in such dire need of God, of His love, I implore you to pay attention to His love. There is so much fear and disdain, it is almost as if some well meaning people have forgotten Christs last command…Love one another. Show Gods Love. BE Gods Love to one another.
If these are the last days,as some might suggest, and if you are a believer of God through Christ, you have little to fear. If it is a condition of humanity, as we are ALL inescapably prone for, still do not fear. Love. Let Love be your guide.
For every person on this globe that need some God in their life, reach out and touch them…not with fear and brimstone, but with love and compassion. WE ALL JUST WANT A LITTLE MORE LOVE.
Be the Castle on the Hilltop. Shine your Light, let it touch whoever you meet…..and above all, remember, you are, a Child of God.
