Glow little Glow-worm

Quote; “As the stars tell us that there is a great light in heaven with whose glory they are made bright, so Christians are to make it manifest that there is a God on the throne of the universe whose character is worthy of praise and imitation.  The bright beams of heaven’s light are shining upon your pathway, dear reader, and I pray that you may make the most of your opportunities. Receive and cherish every heaven-sent ray, and your path will grow brighter and brighter unto the perfect day.  We gain strength by walking in the light, that we may have energy to run in the way of God’s commandments. We may gain an increase of strength at every step we advance heavenward.        We need constantly a fresh revelation of Christ, a daily experience that harmonizes with His teachings. High and holy attainments are within our reach. Continual progress in knowledge and virtue is God’s purpose for us.” {FLB 95}

John 8:12 “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” 1 John 1:7 “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”  Matthew 5:14 “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid.” Daniel 12:3 “And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” John 9:5 “As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” Matthew 17:2 “And [Jesus] was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.” John 1:4 “In him was life; and the life was the light of men.” John 3:19-21 “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.  But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.”  Romans 2:6 “Who will render to every man according to his deeds: [done in the flesh]” John 1:14 “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”



We know that “Jesus Christ” is “The Word,” which became “Flesh, and dwelt among us,” we have a concept of, “Word to Flesh,” so why not have “Flesh to Word?”  If Christ be in us, then we are a new creation, 2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”  A “Believer” is transformed from “Flesh Living” into “Spirit Living,” from Death unto Life, from Darkness into Light, we become a new creature, a new creation, a “New Birth” where 2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”     

Philippians 1:27b “that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;” Philippians 2:5 “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:”  Philippians 2:4-5 “Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:” Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

Dear Reader; Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things [are] honest, whatsoever things [are] just, whatsoever things [are] pure, whatsoever things [are] lovely, whatsoever things [are] of good report; if [there be] any virtue, and if [there be] any praise, think on these things.”  So let us all who are “In Christ” Glow brightly in this dark world, to the Glory of God, and by this attract sinners to repentance, to also brighten their corner, where they are.
