Be light in a dark world – Prayer for August 16. Praise the Lord everybody! The world talks about how some people know their stuff but are not good test takers, but when it comes down to faith you either have it or you don’t.
Bible Verse for Today
“Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you – unless, of course, you fail the test? (2 Corinthians 13:5)
The fact of the matter is every day we wake up we need to affirm who we are in Christ and that He is in us. Then we must prepare ourselves for the test, the test is being a light in this dark and evil world each and every day. Bracelets with WWJD on them are great if you are putting them to good use, are you really asking yourself “what would Jesus do?” before you commit yourself to act on something or plan about something?
When Paul wrote this to the Church at Corinth, he was challenging them to know for themselves who they were in Christ, and that Christ was in them, and not to be ashamed to trust their new nature. Paul knew who they were, he knew what he had invested in them, but they were young in the faith and were just learning to walk in Christ.
God is challenging believers today to never waiver in their faith, always knowing who’s they are and whom they serve. Sometimes we will make wrong choices, but if we decide every day to trust the God in us, those wrong choices will be few and far between. We must remember that God never leaves us or forsakes us, it is us who leave him. God bless you all.
