Whether the time of His Coming tarries or is upon us quickly, we are to labor in the fields until then.
What is your gift? Where is your talent? Is it hidden? If so, pull yourself and it from under the bushel and out of the valley.
The rest of us NEED you. Show up. This is not a dress rehearsal, the stage is set and the curtain has torn. The morning star has risen and we wait for His return.
Do not let the world, a religious or politically correct mindset, or wolves extinguish your light. SHINE.
Read Daniel 12:3
Matthew 5:14-16 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
No more hiding or bushel basket tending/mending for me.
We ought not to court publicity for our virtue, or notoriety for our zeal; but, at the same time, it is a sin to be always seeking to hide that which God has bestowed upon us for the good of others. A Christian is not to be a village in a valley, but a "city set upon a hill," he is not to be a candle under a bushel, but a candle in a candlestick, giving light to all.
