Beloved, lift up your voice and praise the Lord, whom it please to make you part of him and enlist you among His armies of cross. Wow! You are to combat the forces of darkness around you. You are to dispel the darkness within your environment. How, someone wants to know.
You are light of the world, the salt of the earth, said our Lord Jesus. you are an epistle which an believer will read and come to Jesus, you are the chosen one, a royal priest hood. Wow! What array of offices you occupy in God’s kingdom, you are an apple of God’s eye, what money and fame cannot do for you; grace and mercies is doing just that. What an election. Praise the Lord!
Our topic for today is going to highlight for us the theme of the month, hope someone is excited, Praise the Lord! Beloved, what happens when light suddenly appear where is thick darkness? Even the light is a stick of a match, the immediate environment is illuminated and the darkness is expel.
That is the kind of person we ought to be. Is that who you are? Are life and light to those perishing around you? Can it said to men trooping to hell made a 360degree turn back to Christ just because of you. That is the mandate Christ is giving you and if you are ready to obey then come hither and receive more instructions.
In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. John 1:4
When Jesus came to a world that was in bondage to darkness and dead in its sin, He came as light and life. His light dispelled sin’s darkness wherever He went, for the forces of evil could not withstand Him. The life He brought was abundant and free, available to all who were dead in their sin (Eph. 2:1; John 10:10).
If you are a Christian, Jesus lives in you, and His light is within you. Christians are called to dispel darkness (Eph. 5:11). The light of Christ ought to shine so brightly through you that those practicing darkness are uncomfortable when they are around you. The light within you should dispel darkness from the lives of your friends, coworkers, and family members.
The fullness of life found in Christ dwells within you as a Christian (Col. 1:27). The life that Jesus offers is available to others through you. Don’t discount what you have to give to those who are hurting. Christ’s life within you is more than sufficient to meet every human need.
When people encounter you, they encounter Christ within you. You do not know all the answers, but you have Someone within you who does! You will not carry the burden of the needs of others. Christ will. Be aware that just as many resisted Jesus, so there will be those who resist the truth that you offer (John 1:11).
Be thankful, however, that God chooses to express Himself through you, giving light and life to those around you.

What Is Our Role In Winning The Lost To Christ?
Mark 4:26-29 gives us four helpful insights:
- WE ARE TO FAITHFULLY SOW THE SEED ON ALL KINDS OF SOIL:
In the parable of the sower (Mark 4:1-8, 14-20), Christ told of the person who threw the seed (the Gospel) on various types of soil (men’s hearts): hard, shallow, weed-infested, and “good.”
The sower’s job was not to inspect the condition of the soil, but to faithfully ” scatter seed on the ground… ” (Mark 4:26b)
- WE ARE TO STEP BACK AND ALLOW THE GOSPEL TO DO ITS WORK:
The inner-working of the Gospel upon a person’s heart is mysterious, God-directed, and beyond our control or efforts:
” Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. All by itself the soil produces grain… ” (Mark 4:27)
III.WE ARE TO OBSERVE THE SOIL:
It important for us to understand that before reaping the harvest, an orderly and timely growth process must first transpire:
” First the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head.“(Mark 4:28)
- WE ARE TO REAP THE HARVEST:
Because of our inclination toward procrastination, we could easily miss the opportune time to reap the harvest: ” Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months and then comes the harvest‘ ?… I tell you… the fields are ripe for harvest. As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come.” (John 4:35; Mark 4:29)
I am intrigued with the fact that when Christ spoke of the partnership between sower and reaper He only offered a reward to the reaper: ” One sows and another reaps… The reaper draws…wages… ” (John 4:37, 36)
Perhaps He knew that reapers were in scarce supply and needed the added incentive!
At any rate, let’s get out there and sow the seed, step back, observe, and… harvest!
It therefore means that when light comes it illuminate darkness. Do not allow darkness to cover your light because of your attitude such as-Observation other than action, keeping mute when you should speak up and such like.
Beloved, read the following scriptures for more empowerment- Ps 34:5, 1 Cor 3:16; 2Tim 3:14; Zech 8:13; Rom 10:15.
Always remember that you light, on this note, we declare this week open, you will return at the end with plenty testimonies in Jesus Name.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
