Light Shine

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16

Our recovery groups should always be the city on a hill that is not hidden. Too often our recovery groups are the best-kept secret in town. There are plenty of hurting people searching for a way out of the pit of despair that has consumed them. We have to look at our groups as the emergency rooms for the church. We use every tool available to tell our communities that there is new life in Jesus Christ.

Some of us are not comfortable telling the world about our recovery groups. Recovery is not, and was never meant to be, a place to hide what Christ has given us. Recovery means that we do things that are not in our comfort zones. If we are not comfortable telling the world about recovery through Christ, then there might be some very basic issues we need to address. It’s not a suggestion that we are to spread the Good News of Christ to every corner of the world. Christ commanded us to tell everyone about Him and what He has done in our lives.

Light shines, as a beacon to weary travelers, from our recovery groups in the same way light shines from us. Each of us is a light in a very dark and hurting world. Recovery in Christ produces brilliant light that fills even the darkest places and lets the world know that there is hope. We are children of light, shining radiantly for those who are lost and who wish to experience the healing we have found.

Today’s Prayer

Heavenly Father, Your Son Jesus is the light of the world. Whatever light that shines through me, comes from Him. Help me to be that city on a hill that can not be hidden. Help my recovery group to be a city on a hill that is in plain sight for everyone to see. I pray all this in Your Son’s name, Jesus Christ. Amen.
