Where do I send the light – light into light, or light into darkness? You are sent to nourish the hungry, to show those without hope where you have found your own. The coming together of My children is to strengthen, that they go out, returning again for rest and encouragement among the saved, in Spirit and in Word. Let he who has been called come, but when he finds his strength, go he must. To the world of the perishing the light is to shine in the coming together, encouragement and lifting, and again to the harvest. Do not fear those of the world, but call to them in love and leading fellowship. Do not cower from the wicked, as you were once among them. My Spirit is sufficient for the visit, My Word that you might speak truth in My love to the lost. Light the way gently. Great light blinds those accustomed to darkness. Enough to attract, to show the narrow way, I send them to you; with My eyes you will see them.
Luke 19:5-7 (ESV) – And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, hurry and come down, for I must stay at your house today.” So he hurried and came down and received him joyfully. And when they saw it, they all grumbled, “He has gone in to be the guest of a man who is a sinner.”
Bottom Line: The workplace is not only a place to make a living, it is also a place God has ordained for us to create relationships, build trust, and grow deep friendships – even with non-Christians. Often the workplace is where we have the greatest opportunity to influence those who don’t know Jesus. Attending church is important for us to be encouraged and strengthened, but the ultimate goal of our nourishment is so that we can go out into the world (our workplace for many of us) and be the light we are called to be. Look around with His eyes. Pray for courage to introduce yourself and don’t forget your/you’re light.
