"You are the light of the world -- like a city on a mountain, glowing in the night for all to see." (v.14)
A shadow is the evidence of light; a dark spot where light
is refused to stand.
We, as humans, are always being pulled by something. The
song "Shadows" is a song that addresses a situation most all
of us have been in. The after math of a good decision. What
comes after making a move to follow the Lord closer? Why
is it so hard?
Many would equate a shadow with a place to rest or a block
from the extreme heat. I would challenge you to keep clear
from the shadow. Many will walk through the heat and choose
the more comfortable route. But as believers we are pushed to
make a decision for the Lord and take the light we have and show
hope and love to the dark spots around us. Because of the fall of
man and the battle between good and evil, it is inevitable that we
will feel a tug away from the light. We may feel tempted to give
in to the heat and choose the more comfortable and relaxing road.
Don't become slave to the darkness. Don't listen to Satan. Take
your light and shine it to the shadows.
