Colossians 1:19-20, Luke 10:1 For it pleased the Father that in
him should all fulness dwell; And, having made peace through the blood of
his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether
they be things in earth, or things in heaven. *After these things the Lord
appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into
every city and place, whither he himself would come.
With the fall of man came the fall and destruction of many things. So much evil has continued to prevail in various spheres of life and society. Darkness seems to be covering the earth again. But there is hope! Jesus is the hope of the world and He lives in you and me. That means that right now, you and I are the hope of the world. We are the light of the
world. God wants to use us to spread the fragrance of His knowledge everywhere, 2Cor.2:14. He wants to use us to spread the influence of Christ in every sphere of life and society so that His Kingdom will come and His will will be done in all spheres of life and society as it is done in Heaven.
We are His ambassadors; His body, His eyes, His mouth, His hands, His mind and His legs. It is through us that He wants to heal and return order to every sphere of life and society. Wherever you find yourself, know that it is Jesus that has sent you there and that the reason He sent you there is because He wants to dwell in that space. He wants His presence to envelope that place. He wants His will to be done on earth and more specifically, in that place, as it is done in Heaven. As His ambassadors, we are to carry His mantle from politics, to sports, to business, to education, to entertainment and to the ends of the Earth.
You do not have to struggle with darkness. All you have to do is be the light which does not negotiate with darkness. Your light will overcome every darkness that is around you and God will continue to increase your sphere of influence. Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.
PRAYER FOCUS: Pray that through us, the children of God, the light and influence of Christ
will consume every sphere of life and society.
