London apparently outdid all other cities this year with a £1.5 million fireworks display on the Thames river – we watched it on the telly in the comfort of our home partying with a bunch of good friends…
I’m sure there are better ways to spend £1.5mil… But lets do the best with the light we have as Christians, and lets put on a magnificent display of our own this year – from Matthew 5:14-16 in the Message Translation:
“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.
LETS SHINE in 2008!
