Armor and Light

January 14, 2011

I work in a hotel in downtown Harrisburg, PA. Currently they are re-doing the lighting system in the ballroom and the surrounding hallways. It is very odd to see the building so dark. There was not much business the last two days so it really wasn’t that big of a deal to walk through the hallway quickly to get out to the lobby. Today, however, there was a good bit of business. So in order to make everyone’s job easier, the hotel placed work lights in the halls. 

As I walked through the hall, I couldn’t help but to be drawn to the light. I walked on the side of the hall where the light was shining, against my better judgment, I kept looking into the light, I felt comfortable in that light. The darkness was thick and encased the hallway the day before but now a single light changed everything.

A single light is all it takes to change things.

A single light is all it takes to overcome darkness.

There are so many references to light and darkness in the Word of God, but this is the one that stuck out to me:

2 Corinthians 4:6
6 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.

One light can shine from darkness. God has given a light that shines from our hearts so that we can take that light into the darkness to shine the knowledge of God’s glory.

What are you doing today to let your light shine into the darkness? Showing someone that there is a path that will lead them to more joy than they could ever imagine.

Romans 13:12 says:
12 The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.

Put on your armor of light and SHINE!

We would love to hear your stories of light, so please leave them in the comments or email them to
