Shine the Light

In Luke 1:57-80, Zechariah said that the purpose of the Messiah would be to redeem God’s people. He said his son would be named John who would shine the light and give God’s people knowledge of salvation through forgiveness of their sins. Those who would accept Jesus as Savior would receive this forgiveness.

Our purpose should be to serve God each day knowing that because of Christ, we are holy and righteousness before Him. To shine the light in a sometimes dark world so there is guidance to a path of peace.

This day with God, share with others how the Lord’s blessings are upon them. Give them confidence because of the Lord’s acceptance of them and pray for them to lead lives that are doing great things for their families, their community, and the Lord.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
