The SpotLIGHT is On You!

Greetings!

BlogFam, 
A spotlight is: 
 a strong, focused light thrown upon a particular spot, as on a small area of a stage or in a television studio, for making some object, person, or group especially conspicuous.

A spotlight is used to focus your attention on a particular point that you might have otherwise overlooked, ignored, or dismissed.  A spotlight is very helpful in guiding you to whatever is the most important movement or message at the time.  A spotlight informs and reminds you that everything outside of its scope is not where your attention should be and is very likely a distraction.  

Have you ever been to any kind of production where spotlights were used? 
Have you ever been under the focus of or on the periphery of a spotlight?
Have you ever allowed the Word of God to place a spotlight on your life and the issues you might be facing?
Let me pause right there...

Friends, I know that this can be a really difficult conversation to have... the conversation about using the Word of God to place a spotlight on our own lives and the issues we might be facing.  I say that it is difficult because depending on the issue, we may not want to consult the Word because it might contradict what our flesh wants to pursue.  I say that it is difficult because perhaps the interpretation you have been taught is contradictory to your own research and exploration of the context and culture of the text.  I say that it is difficult when your understanding puts you at odds with popular culture and what has been deemed as being politically correct and socially acceptable.  This can be a really difficult conversation to have most especially because we too often forget that now we ALL see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even aalso I am known. [1 Corinthians 13:12].

However, in spite of the difficulty of such conversations and the mystery of the Scripture, the Light of Christ continues to shine its spotlight on our hearts and how we respond to the Light of Christ in our lives matters.  We should not overlook, ignore, or dismiss the Light of Christ that compels us to be different and to make a difference in the world.  Actually, if we surrendered to the Light of Christ, we would be guided to whatever is the most important movement or message at the time.  AND it will inform and remind us that everything outside of its scope is not where our attention should be and is very likely a distraction.

BlogFam, the spotLIGHT is on YOU!  
And even if you think that your witness has been shaky lately or that your witness has been on point for a while now, 

The people walking in darkness
    have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of deep darkness
    a light has dawned.
[Isaiah 9:2]

The Light of Christ has been shining, it is shining, and it will continue to shine.  Because of this truth, those who walk in darkness have seen the light but still choose to remain in darkness, on the periphery of the light and living in opposition to its guidance.  Furthermore, those of us who choose to walk in the light confuse them when our witness is shaky, inconsistent, speculative, or hard to discern.

BlogFam, the spotLIGHT is on YOU!
What will you do?  How will you live?  When will you let your light shine?
We are living in a time in history where those of us who believe that JESUS is the light of the world need to surrender to the instruction of the LIGHT in the very best way we know, with the understanding that we do have, and until the point the light reveals even more.  Now is not the time to be ashamed of being counter-cultural or of embracing a redeemed political correctness that is congruent with Word of God.  People walking in darkness NEED to see a great light!  And I pray that YOU will allow the Light of Christ to be the spotLIGHT on your life so that those who have lived in deep darkness will be drawn to the light that has dawned!

LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE!
GOD LOVES YOU and I DO TOO!

Blessings, Glory, and Sunshine!
Delesslyn
