[Key Word: ROASTED]
Everyone likes a good bonfire in the winter. Nothing beats roasted marshmallows in s’mores on a cold winter night.
(Okay, I know there are some people who don’t like bonfires. . .or s’mores. . .oof, that must be rough.)
The other day I was at a friends house roasting s’mores, and as I watched the fire dance I realised how powerful it was.
Power isn’t usually something used to describe fire, or light, but I found it fitting. With a single fire, the entire five foot radius was warmed. With a single light source, the whole backyard patio was lit.
My world, as was, was lit (literally) and warm. All because of a single fire.
That got me thinking (not much doesn’t). What if I’m a light?
“”You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.”
Matthew 5:14 ESV
A little light can make a lot of a difference. Have you ever struck a match in the dark? The bigger and thicker the darkness- the brighter the light shines.
A single light can make a world of difference.
I want to be a light. Whether at co’op, or church, or home, I want to shine in a way that could only be Jesus through me.
What does this look like, you ask? Unconditional love, endless joy, gentle patience— the fruits of the spirit (Galatians 5:22).
Everyone has fuel and oxygen to burn. The question is- Will you let God light it?
