Don't Let Your Light Grow Dim Aug 29 2012


"In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven." - Matthew 5:16

Astrologists have told us that the most recognizable feature in the skies of the Southern Hemisphere is the Southern Cross and that it's disappearing. No, not in the physical sense, but, because of the increase in the amount of artificial light in places like Sydney, Australia, the Southern Cross appears fainter and less distinctive in the sky.

How like the lives of many who claim to be Christians. The influence of the world on the ethical and moral standards is so great that the truth as found in the Bible seems to dim. Where once they were light in the darkness, now their light has faded into obscurity, no longer seen in a world filled with darkness.

But it doesn't have to be that way. If you call yourself a Christian, let me ask you a question. Is the light of Christ shining through your life or is it really non-existent - invisible to others? Don't allow your light to vanish without having a positive influence for Christ.

Yes, report it Nevermind

Great post pastor, but I believe you mean, "astronomers." I don't believe astrologists are that intelligent. :-)
