Recently, Jocelyn asked us to be a tree and stand firm for our beliefs. Today I want to ask you to be a candle (even though candles and trees aren’t usually a good combination, today they are!). In Luke chapter 11, verses 35-36, it says:
“35 Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.
36 If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.”
I also found this neat picture:
Isn’t it so cool?
Light has no shadow! So when we have the light of God, there will be no evil in us and that’s what we want, isn’t it?! Another way to say that is: If there is no evil in us, then we have the light of God. People around us notice our light. Many times people have asked a member of the Church how they always have this bright glow around them, or how their eyes have such a SPARKLE in them. When we have the pure light of God, we can share it with others and help them receive that light! (Can you tell I love this topic?) 🙂
Many of you have heard of Studio C or even seen some of their hilarious clean comedy! Studio C is a group of 10 college graduates and Church members who have made it their mission to brighten lives, share clean media, and live the gospel through comedy! They make an effort to stay away from the crude humor that is so common on the Internet and on TV today. They are a great example to anyone who is trying to share the Light of Christ. Even though most of us will never hit a million views on YouTube or be famous, even the one or two or ten or fifty lives we all touch matter, because they are all children of God and Heavenly Father wants EVERY one of His children back home! Smile at someone in the grocery store, give a friend a hug, perform small acts of service. Each of these are ways we can share the Light of Christ!
Studio C is participating in the next Face-to-Face event for youth on October 19th! You can send in your questions about the gospel and they might just pick yours to answer LIVE! Even if you don’t think you have a question, tune in and you might just get answers to one you didn’t know you had!
