Flashlight tag is one of my favorite outdoor games. But the key to flashlight tag is that you must actually have a flashlight. Going out in the dark without one wouldn’t make for a very fun time. You wouldn’t be able to tag anyone, and you and your friends could end up tripping on things, bumping in to one another, or worse, getting really lost!
The world without Jesus Christ is a lot like trying to play flashlight tag without a flashlight. Thankfully, as believers we have the light of Christ in us. So take your flashlight and go tag someone!
“You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.”
- Matthew 5:14-16 NLT
Lord, thank you for the hope and light we have because of Jesus’ sacrifice for us on the cross. Help us to take that light and share it with others, so that you will receive praise. In Jesus’ name, amen.
