Spiritual Life: Use your voice to be a light in the world

Micah Smith, Tri-City Herald on

Published in Religious News

There is a message in this story for us. As Christ followers, your creative voice is needed right now -- on a host of issues and concerns.

It's time to use your voice.

"Here's another way to put it: You're here to be light, bringing out the God-colors 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." (Matthew 5:14-16, The Message)
