Be the Mild – A Devotional by Julie Lairsey

That is the message we have now heard from him and declare to you; God is gentle; in him there is no such thing as a darkness in any respect.”  1 John 1:5

As we journeyed on our boat journey by way of the spectacular winding rooms at Waitomo Caves in New Zealand, we have been amazed with the abundance of glow worms that lit up the darkish, damp and sheltered cave. The glowworms’ bio luminescent tails generated a ravishing brilliant gentle.

At that very second, whereas floating alongside within the boat I started to ponder concerning the gentle of Christ on this in any other case darkish world, and the way Isaiah had prophesied that out of a darkened Galilee would come an important gentle for everybody (John 1:9). Christ can be the “gentle of the world”, the One in whom there’s “no darkness in any respect” (1 John 1:5).

The scriptures inform us we’re the sunshine that Christ has despatched to this darkish world (Matthew 5:14). One in every of our duties as Christians is to shine brightly so our Savior could be recognized to others and be glorified.

Are you a illustration of God’s gentle on this planet? Are you exposing the darkness by way of the reality and bearing fruit for his Kingdom? Right this moment, let his mercy, grace and goodness overwhelm you, and permit God’s presence to fill you so others can see the sunshine he offered the world.

Expensive God, thanks for sending your son, Jesus Christ to save lots of us from the darkness of sin. Assist us to fathom how we are able to share your gentle to others in our world. Might we be pleased about your presence and use the instruments you gave us to characterize you. Amen.
