Today God says:
  "You are the light of the world".

He promises me:
  "You are the light of the world … Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven". (Matt. 5:14-16)

My response to the word:
  I am the light of the world, illuminating by the abiding Light of Jesus Christ who lives within me. Throughout this day I will let His light shine through me. Wherever I go, I will dispel the darkness of this world. I will do good works at every opportunity that is presented to me. In this way, I know that others will glorify my Father in heaven.

My prayer:
  Father, thank you for Jesus Christ who is the Light of the world. Help me to be like Him, allowing my light to shine wherever I go. I want others to see you in my life today.

Today's scriptures:
  "While you have the light, believe in the light so that you will become people whose lives show the light". (John 12:36 GW) "Once you lived in the dark, but now the Lord has filled you with the light. Live as children who have light". (Eph. 5:8 GW) "You belong to the day and the light not to the night and the dark". (1 Thess. 5:5 GW)
 

Quote for today:
Evangelism is just one beggar telling another beggar where to find bread. (D T Niles)
 

On this day:
On 10th February 1859, Jonathan Goforth was born on his father's farm near Thomdale, Ontario, Canada. He was the seventh of 11 children. He had a godly upbringing, but in spite of missing much public school because of work on the farm he graduated at the top of his class. He married Florence Rosalind Bell-Smith and the couple went to China, where they had a very hard life, but a very fruitful ministry and they labored together for 47 years. Their field was a pioneer work in North Honan Province, considered one of the most dangerous and anti-foreign sections of anti-foreign China. Many in China and Mongolia came to Christ through the Goforths.
