Quote du Jour
Christians may differ on a variety of points, but they have all one spiritual appetite; and if we cannot all feel alike, we can all feed alike on the bread of life sent down from heaven. At the table of fellowship with Jesus we are one bread and one cup. As the loving cup goes round we pledge one another heartily therein. Get nearer to Jesus, and you will find yourself linked more and more in spirit to all who are like yourself, supported by the same heavenly manna. ---Charles Spurgeon, Morning and Evening

a new word for the new year... light...

For several years now... at the beginning of a new year... I've asked Him for one word to define my walk with Him for the year...

Past years' words have been...
obedience...
journey...
new...
freedom...

This year's word...

Light...
light... something that makes vision possible... spiritual illumination... truth...
---Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, 11th Ed.
He actually brought the word to my attention several months ago...
before I even thought about a word for 2017...

I've been learning He is the only source of light...

Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, "I am the Light of the world;
he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life."
John 8:12 NASB

He alone makes vision possible...
illuminates the spiritual reality around us...
reveals truth...

Those who follow Him not only walk in the Light of Life...
they are the light of the world...

He says to His disciples...

"You are the light of the world. ..."
Matthew 5:14 NASB

My prayer recently...
in many situations...
How do I be light in this circumstance...?
How can I reveal Your light to this person...?

To shine His Light as a follower...
is to bring Him glory...
because what is more glorious...
than light... in a very dark place...

Have you asked Him for one word this year...?

It's a spiritual discipline which has had a surprising impact in my life...
