Shine On!

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (John 8:12).

Summertime is a season filled with light. The days are longer; the sun seems to shine brighter; the grass turns green and flowers bloom; the water is warm enough to swim outside; and outdoor recreation activities abound.

“A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows” is a quote attributed to St. Francis of Assisi. Jesus our Savior, is the SON-beam that drives away all the darkness and shadows of our sin. He is the Light and gives believers in Him the light of life.

By the power of the Holy Spirit, share your faith story and how you have been “enlightened” by your Savior with those you come into contact with this week. Be a light for your Lord right where you are.  Shine on!
