Take your Candle, Go Light Your World

This little light of mine

I’m going to let it shine

Oh, this little light of mine

I’m going to let it shine

Hallelujah

This little light of mine

I’m going to let it shine

Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine

Hide it under a bushel, No?

I’m going to let it shine!

Won’t let satan blow it out, No!

I’m going to let it shine, let it shine,

Let it shine!

If you ever went to VBS. Growing up during the sixties and the seventies that was a song that everyone learned and loved to sing.

You got to do all the body language with it, it had a great message, it had a snappy little beat to it and it was easy to remember.

Many a child thought to themselves, why wouldn’t everyone want their light to shine?,

I’m going to tell everyone about Jesus when I grow up.

The road to adulthood in Christianity, is paved with good intentions, but somewhere along the way,

we forgot to keep the batteries charged up, or changed in our light

and for a lot of Christians, their light aint been so shiny lately!

If you go to Christian witnessing stats. On the net, this is what you will find.

Of the 7 Billion that now live on planet earth, 15-25% of the population of the world is yet to hear a clear presentation of the gospel so that they can personally place saving faith in Christ for salvation.

Only 6.3% of the world’s population lives in a culture without a witnessing church – though in large populations many would have little chance to visit one.

93.7% of the population lives where they have a witnessing church, but most Christians are not sharing their faith, usually about 2% do on a regular basis.”

Every one who has accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior, though they may not realize it, has a calling on their life,

While most are not called to be preachers or evangelist, or anything to do with public speaking, all are called to share their faith.

It was the last charge, or marching orders that Jesus gave us before He ascended to Heaven,

You find it in Matt. 28:18-20 NKJ. It is known as the Great Commission

18. And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.

19. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

20. teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

Preachers have been telling their congregations about it, ever since Jesus said those words, to those who were there that day!

Makes you wonder why, after all this time, only 2% share their faith,

maybe the other 98%, just need a little more clarification,

Matt 5:13-16 MSG.

13"Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You’ve lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage.

14-16"Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept.
