You are the LIGHT of the World! August 30 Notes from Papa via Paul Gray
To My very special child, whom I choose to live in, as and through,
You, My child, are the light of the world! Jesus is the Light of the world and He lives in you! As He lives as you and through you, His light shines as and through you for all the world to see! Christ in you, the hope of glory!
Many times you are not even aware of Christ shining as and through you, but He is! Everything good and perfect comes from Me and comes down from above. Any time you think or do something good and perfect, that’s Christ’s light shining through you!
Whenever you notice My beauty in creation, in landscapes, scenery, flowers, plants, animals, birds, fish, nature… Christ’s light is shining as and through you. Any time you are captivated by beautiful music, inspiring art, wonderful literature, heart-touching plays, movies or shows, Our light shines as you and through you.
Most especially when you see and relate to other people in love, joy and peace, Our light shines as and through you! When you see the perfect innocence in a baby, the sheer, unbridled joy and happiness in a toddler, the excited wonder in a child, the awkward humanness of a teenager, the growing personhood of a young adult, the nurturing of a parent, two people captivated by and in love with each other, musicians performing, artists creating, actors acting, anytime you notice proud parents and grandparents and friends… then Our light shines as you and through you on everyone around you.
When you empathize with someone who is hurting, when you comfort someone in their loss, when you encourage someone who’s struggling, when you’re patient with someone who has special needs, when you help a child grasp something new, when you engage a co-worker or teammate, when you inspire a fellow traveler… all those are times when Christ in you shines His light through you on to those around you.
He does that through everyone else too… even if they don’t know Him or know that He’s there in them. Any time you see another person doing any of the things I’ve just described, you are seeing Christ in them!
They enjoy and experience Us so much more when they know Us, who We really are, and what We have already done for them. So, I want you to proclaim Jesus to them and use moments like I’ve described to reveal Jesus in people. As you do that, you are truly our light to, and of, the World!
