In a darkened world, you stand out to everyone because Christ shines His light upon you. Your face reflects His glory, His grace, His joy, and His love upon those who are around you.
“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.
See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you.
Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.”
~ Isaiah 60:1-3
While it is true that “bad company corrupts good character” (1 Co. 15:33) if the good charactered person tries to fit-in with the bad company, the flow of influence does reverse direction when the good charactered person approaches living daily life with the mind of Christ. The surrounding bad company can be influenced when God’s light is deliberately reflected by the good charactered person’s whole life onto those around them who are in darkness.
Let’s consciously and deliberately present our lives to the Lord to serve as a human mirror for His glory.
