Let His Light Shine!

DSC_0335“I will make you a light to the nations, that my salvation may reach to the ends of the earth”. (IS:49:6)

Isaiah today reminds us that for a true “servant of the Lord” it is too little to simply raise up or restore those already “the chosen ones”, but rather we must be “a light to the nations, that my salvation may reach to the ends of the earth”.

John the Baptist, whose heart was given totally to the Lord “from the womb”, as a result of that dedicated heart, was able to recognize Jesus as the lamb of God as soon as he saw him approaching.

Are our hearts sufficiently dedicated that we recognize Him in our life experiences? Are we His light to the nations?
