DEVOTION: “We know that we are children of God and that the world around us is under the control of the evil one.” – 1 John 5:19
We are children of God. Yes, we are. We know that the world around us is under control of the evil one. This we know.
The pain, the hurt, the suffering, the turmoil and strife. These are not things of God.
I want to shine a light on these things. I want to show people that there is Hope from the darkness in this world. As children of God, this is our calling. To shine light in the darkness.
The word evil has many synonyms, one of them is darkness. Our charge as Christians, as followers of Jesus, is to shine hope into the darkness. Care for the widow, the orphan, the addict and the lost.
Our calling is to be Jesus in the world.
How are you doing that today? Do you have a plan for today? How can we as followers of Christ shine hope in the darkness?
Share positivity. Share hope. Text someone you haven’t seen in a while and check in on them. Give. Give till it hurts. Care. Read devotions like this one. Share what you learned with others. Use words if you have to.
This world is dark. It needs you to be Jesus in it.
