The Light of the world 

 

By: Lana Sillitoe 

“ Dim. Dim has several meanings related to a lack of light, hope, or knowledge...To dim a light is to dull it, like putting a shade over it. A vague idea without a lot of specifics is also dim, since it's hard to see or understand the idea. “

That is the definition I got from a site of what a dim light is.

Note :The light is still present  but it’s not as vivid as the way a normal light should be. A dim light is dull ,it is strenuous to see everything in a room if the light is faint  . 

In Luke 8:16 the Bible says 

“No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light.”

A light is supposed to illuminate the place it’s been placed . Unfortunately when there's an insufficiency of a power supply it becomes dim .

In  a big beautiful house if the light is dim and a key was missing.The hope of finding it will be low. On the other hand a bright light would give the owner of the house more hope on finding the key because he /she has the knowledge that there's enough light to find what there looking for. Then the lord spoke to me as I was praying he said, 

“Light can get dim...when you meditate on the word your light shines brighter, lack of meditation begins to dim your light .”

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.” Mathew 5:14 .

We are in the world but we’re not of this world read (John 17:16)But we are the light of the world. How do we keep the light that we already have in us shining ever more brightly? 

By the word of God . 

In the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was God .John 1:1 .

Gods will is his word .

Jesus said in Mathew 4:4 

“‘Man shall not live by bread alone,

but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

We are to meditate on the word day and night. We are spirits and we feed on the word. If we don’t feed on the word we become malnourished. In other words we'll lack knowledge of who we really are.

Hosea 4:6“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. ”

By mediating on Gods word we replace our thoughts for Gods word.

 

1 Timothy 4:15 King James Version (KJV)

Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.

 

The word of God is our battery, generating light in our spirit. For we are the light of the world and to keep shining we need to meditate on Gods word.

 

Joshua 1:8 English Standard Version (ESV)

8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
