LIGHT IDENTIFIES YOU AS THE OBJECT OF GOD’S AFFECTION:
WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES
LIGHT IDENTIFIES YOU AS THE OBJECT OF GOD’S AFFECTION because you are his design in which he has instilled spirit, knowledge and wisdom for his purpose. Paul so eloquently describes it this way: ‘So my dear Christian friends, companions in following the call to the heights, take a good hard look at Jesus; he is the centerpiece of everything we believe, faithful in everything God gave him to do’… (Hebrew 3:1-6, MGS); therefore, we too should be faithful in everything we do.
In the process of creating and building God spoke all things into being, the very life we breathe, food we eat and hours of sleep are all part of the greatest gifts of all. You are the object of God’s affection because he gave life and provided everything needed for our journey here in this earthly realm. We move about each day; a moment in time, under his watchful eye and care knowing it is his spirit that lives in us. By becoming learners and followers of the pattern of Jesus we shine as light when we are obedient and in his will; that LIGHT IDENTIFIES YOU AS THE OBJECT OF GOD’S AFFECTION.
It you desire to be one of God’s chosen; you must shed some things, humble yourself and seek directions by allowing the Holy Spirit to dwell in you. Ask God to show you the way and wait to follow; patience and endurance becomes your trademark for the kingdom; whereas, LIGHT IDENTIFIES YOU AS THE OBJECT OF GOD’S AFFECTION. You then begin to understand how God works in your life and how he directs you to share the good news with others seeking the way. You become his pride possession in such a way that you become solely dependent upon him; he will never leave your side even when storms of life are raging all around you.
For Jesus says, “You are the light of the world…let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5: 14-16, NKJV). Your good works are the starting point in sharing the good news, the message of hope to the world.
In order to understand the plan for your life you must be willing to accept those who seek to cause you harm as well as those you choose as friends. Love is the key to becoming the humble servant you are designed and called to be. Scripture plainly points the way, but if you don’t take time to study and learn of the process that brings you in line with your purpose your growth becomes stagnated.
Remember, you are called and chosen, LIGHT IDENTIFIES YOU AS THE OBJECT OF GOD’S AFFECTION, walk out your purpose in faith and obedience.
