Jesus was in the world, but He was not a part of the world. He came to touch the world, but He never became like the world. He was separate from the world, yet He changed the world around Him. We must pray that we can find that balance too.
People are drawn to light. We want them to be drawn to the light of the Lord in us. Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life” (John 8:12). Ask God to make you more like Christ so that everyplace you go people will stop you and say, “Tell me what you know.” “What is this special thing you have?”
Lord, may Your light so shine in me that I become a light to all who know me. May it be not I who live, but You who live in me. Make me to be so much like Christ that when people see me they will want to know You better.
In Jesus name I pray
I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
