imageIf you haven’t had enough fun passing the salt and sneezing on people, wait until you start setting them on fire!  We’ve gotten our influence flowing powerfully through the flu and the flavor, now we’re livening things up by igniting the flame.

This is so exciting. THE Light of the world has called us the light of the world (John 8:12, Matthew 5:14-15) and given us the privilege of representing Him on the earth. He’s given us the light of life and has set us apart to be radiant lights, oil lamps that light up the whole house, candles too bright to be hidden, a city glowing for His glory.

There is nothing quite like living so vibrantly for Jesus, that people take notice and find themselves drawn to the flame. Do you know someone whose candle could use a light? Let you’re fiery influence strike the match.

"You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16 (NKJV)
