Uganda Day 11

daily prayer guide

Day 11: Tuesday, August 6
Lamps were vital for every household in Jesus’ time. They filled homes with light, banishing and overcoming darkness. We as Christians have a similar function in the world.

Imagine a world with no light. Think of as many ways as you can in which your life would be different. Team members have experienced no electricity while in the refugee camp and have been faced with the importance of LIGHT…and how dark it is without light.

Jesus referred to Himself as the Light of the World—a Light that darkness could never put out.

Jesus is the Light of the World, and we point the way to Him through our witness in word and deed. If we fail to help others discover Him, then the world remains in darkness and cannot thrive. It’s unfinished work...

We must brighten the way with grace, love and compassion.

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:14-16)
