Being the light....
Today my wife was running late this morning. She asked me to take our daughter to school. I complied to her wishes. We stepped into the car, strapped ourselves in, and checked for any missing items that we may have needed for the day. While checking things off, I noticed the fogg was preventing me from viewing anything out the windows! Immediately I searched for anything I could find to wipe the fog! After scanning the area I found an old sheet of paper. Quickly, I made my way to each window clearing it so we could leave.
Figuring at this time the windshield was clear enough to drive, I was shortly proved wrong. Suddenly, I noticed the further I drove, the more the window started fogging up again. I put the defrost on high hoping that it would clear faster, but It didn't work!! Now, I'm on the road, can't see, and worried because I can't see out my windows. It looked really bad but there was a car in front of me. The best thing about it was that they had their lights on.
I followed those brakelights all the way to the school which happened to have been my destination. How crazy was it that the car I followed was going to the same place I was going?! Wherever their lights went, I went. If those lights moved suddenly to the right, I did too. If they went left, so did I! I was on the bumper of that car like Kool on Aide! Thank Heaven I made it to the school safely!
I dropped off my precious cargo at her school got back into the car and began my journey back home. While on the way home the windows became clear as crystal. At that time I was able to find my own way back home.
1 Corinthians 11:1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ. John 16:7-9 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light (Jesus), that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
I relayed that little adventure to say this, us as the reflecting light of Jesus should be as the brake lights in this foggy world. There are people in the world looking for clarity to reach their destination of Salvation in Jesus Christ. We must make sure that our lights stay bright for family, friends, acquaintances, and strangers. Jesus is the only one that can set us free. We are the only lights that can direct them properly to their location until they are able to find there own way. Lets keep the lights bright in our lives to help others find their way to the father!
Hey! My name is Gus and I like to keep things simple! I love Truth, The Father, talking about and encouraging others in their walk with Jesus and desire to be source a of salt and light to you and those seeking a place of refuge in a world of darkness!
