Rev. Mark Miller

“Fireworks” Luke 8:16-18 So often it is the light that shines in the midst of the darkness that produces “WHOA!” A contrast: * We have a lamp that gets lit, but then is HIDDEN UNDER something. * We are to put a lamp on a STAND so that others can see the LIGHT. Jesus ALSO links the concepts of “HEARING and UNDERSTANDING” with the concept of “LIGHT.” This little light of mine, I’m GONNA let it shine = INTENTIONAL CHOICE. Hide it under a bushel, “NO!” = what good does it do the KINGDOM if you hide the light of Christ? Don’t let Satan (blow) it out = Satan wants to diminish your WITNESS and douse your FLAME. Shine all over (fill in the blank) = proudly display the Light of Christ throughout your WEEK, WHEREVER you go. Let it shine till Jesus comes = shine the Light of Christ/PROCLAIM the Good News until your END or THE END.
