"Love Is Your Greatest Gift"
Live in the Light
“Anyone who loves their brother and sister lives in the light, and there is nothing in them to make them stumble. But anyone who hates a brother or sister is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness. They do not know where they are going, because the darkness has blinded them.” (1 John 2:10-11, NIV)
This is such a wonderful scripture, because God is showing us what it means to live in the light. We are living in the light when we have received a revelation of God’s love, and when we walk in that Love daily. Jesus calls all of us to be the “light of the world.” But what does this really mean? How does one be the light of the world?
Well…it’s simple. To be the “light of the world” is to Love. We are the light of the world when we chase away darkness with our expressions of love that in turn light the pathway towards love for others. To the contrary, when we hate, or when we are the conduits of hurt and pain then we are walking in darkness. In fact, this scripture says that anyone who hates is in darkness and is indeed blind.
I’m not sure about you, but I want to live in the light. I want to express God’s goodness in the earth daily by lighting someone else’s pathway by loving extraordinarily. We can chase away darkness with a smile, a kind word or gesture, or by going the extra mile for a friend or stranger.
What if the entire world loved as Jesus loved?? We would have the kingdom of God on the earth. The entire planet would be full of light, and darkness would be chased away into the uttermost region of the universe. Our world is in need of light today, and we are called to be the “light of the world.” Love God and Love Others and together we will chase away darkness one by one.
Remember, we Love God by obeying His Ten Commandments and we Love others by becoming 1 Corinthians 13. Together, Love can change our world.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love (1 Cor. 13:13).
