Being a Beacon

Post  fennywest on Wed 01 Aug 2012, 8:02 pm








Being a Beacon
Shining as Light
Requires effort
Yet not by might
Requires yielding
And obedience
And commitment
To excellence.

You must be visible
And very conspicuous
Continuously burning
Inextinguishable
Boldly proclaiming
The word with your life
With expanding circumference
And enduring influence
Leaving a living legacy
Courting God’s affirmation
And divine confirmation
Like those in the hall of faith
Abel, Noah, Abraham, Enoch.

"You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.
14
"You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.
15
Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.
16
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. Matt5:13-16
6 So he answered and said to me: " This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ' Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,' Says the LORD of hosts.Zech4:6

1 "I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.
2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.
3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.
4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.
5 "I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.
6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.
7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.John15:1-8
