LET YOUR LIGHT SO SHINE…

​#DailyDevotional – Our laws and our institutions must necessarily be based upon the teachings of the Redeemer of Mankind.  It is impossible that it should be other wise; and in this sense and to this extent, our civilization and our institutions are emphatically Christian.”  

U.S. Supreme Court 1892


Those words, uttered by our nation’s highest court a little over one hundred years ago, show that the Supreme Court once held the Word of God in the center of our country’s moral and political compass.  Now, however, as the gavel falls in that same court, it does not hold that same Book in the esteem it once did.  First the court turned its back on the Bible; now it turns its back on the United States Constitution.  What lies ahead?  Scripture has an answer for everything, but what most may not know is that the Bible even has clear and distinct positions on political issues.  If we are to live our lives by the Word of God and obey all His Commands, then we must be acutely aware of what is said in the t Word regarding the world today.  Matthew 5:16 presents a profound truth that should be the clarion call for all Christians in America today—to let our light shine.  Don’t curse the darkness; let our light shine now!


What does that mean?  Simply this:  it’s our duty, as Christians, to let the light of the gospel shine in our lives with the power and force that God intended.  In an American Religious Identification survey, over 76.5 percent of the American adult population claim to be Christian; if this is the truth, why are we not a dominant force in politics and shaping our country’s moral fabric?  It does not require profound intellectual insights to understand that our nation is headed down a pathway of moral and spiritual destruction.  In the meantime, the church hides the light of God from a world that so desperately needs to be illuminated.  Instead of allowing our light to shine through our lives, we sit idly by and curse the darkness we have allowed to perpetuate.
