As a Sandwich Generation granny nanny, one of my greatest desires is to see all my beloveds walking with the Lord Jesus Christ. Leaving a sweet spiritual legacy is of vital importance to us all, isn’t it? As I read the news headlines, it seems like things are getting darker and gloomier, and I’m not referring to the shortened days of winter! Perhaps that is why, as I visit various sites, I’ve noticed a “theme” that seems to be running through so many blog posts – one that I personally think is a sweet gift from God to all of us.
As I wrote two weeks ago, for the first of my Wednesday Advent devotionals, Jesus told us, HE is the light of this world. Not only that, as Amy reminds us, we are ALSO supposed to let our light shine out to this dark world, that others might see God in and through us. As Paul reminds us in the encouraging Bible verses from Ephesians 5, we are to:
Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us…you are light IN the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth). Eph. 5:2,8b-9 (NIV)
What an inspirational Scripture to meditate on as we prepare our hearts during this Advent season. And what lovely and encouraging Bible verses to share with our grandkids as well.
Have a blessed week.
