The Essential 100 Day 51: John 1:1-18: Be The Light Of Life

4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. John 1:4-5

A few years ago a movie came out called ET.  If you have seen the film the main character, the alien, ET had a heart light.  When ever he was feeling something like love or certain emotions the heart would shine.  I don’t know if the writer of the film was thinking about the Holy Spirit being in our hearts, but I think that is a perfect example of the Holy Spirit.  John 1 is one of my favorite passages of scripture because he talks about Jesus being the light onto life.  It’s been my experience in this life that when you allow your heart light to shine it affects people around you in a positive way.  When you love people the way the light of the world loved people it’s a game changer.  In Him was life and that life was the light of men.  When we let our light shine we give life to people that may be struggling in some area.  The Holy Spirit is not just some ghost, He is a person that is in you if you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior.  Let that light shine on others in your sphere of influence, and let God use you to change lives.
