Stop running from the world. Jesus did not call us out of the world, but in it.
He said go into all the world.
Yes it is dark, but you are the light.
He is the light in you that shines in the darkness and darkness has not, can not, and will not overcome it.
Beloved, Jesus came into the world for you! For them.
“Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.
