Don't Be Like a Lightning Bug

‭John 8:12 (AMP)‬ "Once more Jesus addressed the crowd. He said, “I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”

When I was little, I loved to chase lightning bugs. I was intrigued how their light came on and off. I loved capturing as many as I could in a glass jar.

In a way, I look at my life like the on and off glow of a fire fly. Am I in the dark more than the light? No, as a believer, I am reassured by the Holy Spirit that I am in the light, even though my sinful nature may show up at times. I live a life in the light.

What's that children's song?

Little Light of Mine

This little light of mine,
I'm gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine,
I'm gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine,
I'm gonna let it shine,
let it shine, let it shine, oh let it shine.

Ev'rywhere I go,
I'm gonna let it shine.
Ev'rywhere I go,
I'm gonna let it shine.
Ev'rywhere I go,
I'm gonna let it shine,
let it shine, let it shine, oh let it shine.

Jesus gave it to me,
I'm gonna let it shine.
Jesus gave it to me,
I'm gonna let it shine.
Jesus gave it to me,
I'm gonna let it shine,
let it shine, let it shine, oh let it shine.

I want my life to shine!

Matthew 5:14 (NIV) "You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden."
