Jesus Light of the World

Our last vibe was on the tongue.

Proverbs 18v21 Msg

Words kill, words give life; they're either poison or fruit—you choose.

So, how do we go about taming our tongue?


In this vibe I am going to point you to the One who made our tongue. The more we run to Him, spend time with Him, follow His ways, is the more our tongue will bring forth good things.

Jesus summed it all up when he cried out,

John 12:44 Msg

"Whoever believes in me, believes not just in me but in the One who sent me. Whoever looks at me is looking, in fact, at the One who sent me. I am Light that has come into the world so that all who believe in me won't have to stay any longer in the dark."

I was at a women’s meeting and wanted to dash out to the toilet before the sermon. I went to the side door, thinking this will lead me to the other doors. I went through the door and it clicked shut behind me. It was locked. I was in total darkness. All the ladies were singing, so I couldn’t knock on the door, they wouldn’t hear me. Ha! It was so scary but so funny that I started laughing. I had to ‘grope’ my way along walls to try to find something, anything that would let me out of this darkness. Needless to say after several stumbling moments (it seemed like half an hour at the time) I pushed on a door and it swung open to the outside. What a relief. I laughed as I walked all around the outside of the building to get back inside. (Yes I did find the toilets which I really needed by then)

I could have done with a light.

My point is this... one small light can dispel darkness. If you are in a dark room and light just one match, the darkness flees and you can see.

The world can be a dark place for many however we can be the ones who are dispelling that darkness.

Jesus lives in us and He is the light of the world, therefore we are ‘His’ light to the world.
Let’s live it, show it, and speak it.

Our tongues should bring light into the darkness;

Replace...

Lies with Truth

Confusion with Peace

Accusation with Understanding

Offence with Grace 

Hurt with Forgiveness

Resentment with Love

 

Matthew 5:14 Msg

"Here's another way to put it: You're here to be light, bringing out the God-colours in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We're going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don't think I'm going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I'm putting you on a light stand. Now that I've put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you'll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven."
