"You are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness".
(1 Thessalonians 5:5).
Warren in one of his lyrics said: "Let your light so shine that the world may see how to come to Christ who will set them free; Let it's rays gleam bright when the darkness falls, Till each sinful soul for the saviour calls. Let your light so shine that its beams may reach every darkness soul, thus the gospel preach;
Let its brightness shine till that endless day burst upon our sight ne'er to pass away".
Our text portrays Christian youths as children of light and of the day. Is your light shining? As a Christian youth, you are light whatever you are. God expects your light to shine among unbelieving youths, pointing them to Christ who alone can set them free from sin. You must not hide your identity. Your life should portray the light in light. To glow for Christ live a holy life, abstaining from sin and all works of darkness.
CHALLENGE: Abstain from sin and all works of darkness.
PRAYER: Help me Lord to shine as light in this dark sinful world.
