Crank Up The Wattage

Verse of the day:
No one lights a lamp and then covers it with a bowl or hides it under a bed. A lamp is placed on a stand, where its light can be seen by all who enter the house. (Luke 8:16)
Are you open to what Jesus says? Once you take it in, it is no longer hidden, and you are responsible to bring the light to your darkness—letting it shine for all to see. An additional issue is whether you and I are willing to take into our hearts what he says—longing to know and to live what we hear. We may not grasp all of what he says at first, but over time, as our hearts remain open to him, more understanding comes.
As the Holy Spirit works in our hearts, we yearn to know more of Jesus. And as we put into practice what we have already heard and understood, then deeper insight and a more productive life will follow. Let's allow His light to burn brightly in our hearts. Let His teaching so open our lives up, that all we are becomes a place where his light is openly seen—uncovered—drawing all who see it into a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ.
