In the beginning, things were dark and the world was without form. Then God said, “Let there be light!” He created the light to dispel the darkness and to bring life. He still uses it for those purposes. When Jesus came, He carried that light with Him. He then said that you and I were the light and we were to let it shine. God gave us His light to dispel darkness in this fallen world. We’re to bring light and life wherever we go. Many times God takes us through some of the darkest times so that our light can shine even brighter. Don’t hide your light. This world needs that light as much as it did in the beginning. Use your light to give life to someone today.
Here are some Bible verses on using your light.

2. For once you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord; walk as children of Light [live as those who are native-born to the Light].

3. The righteous are like a light shining brightly; the wicked are like a lamp flickering out.

4. The teaching of your word gives light, so even the simple can understand.

5. So don’t hide your light! Let it shine brightly before others, so that your commendable works will shine as light upon them, and then they will give their praise to your Father in heaven.
