We’re Luminaries by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

We're Luminaries by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

And they that be wise shall shine as the
brightness of the firmament; and they
that turn many to righteousness as the
stars for ever and ever (Daniel 12:3).

T
he word translated, “Shine” in the scripture
above is “zahar” in Hebrew, and it means, “to
admonish, teach, inspire, or send out light.”
These all connote leadership, and light gives leadership;
it gives guidance.

It parallels what Jesus implied when He said, “Go
ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in
the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy
Ghost” (Matthew 28:19). “Go and teach all nations”
means go and shine to all nations; inspire all nations.

This is our calling as God’s people: we make
students or pupils of the nations. We show the world
the true life. We show them true happiness and joy. We
show them what the love of God is as we unveil the
Gospel to them. We’re the light in a dark world, to lead
men into Christ and His priceless inheritance.

When you arrive, illumination comes; there’s
direction; darkness is dispelled and the light and
righteousness of God are established. You’re like Paul,
whom the Lord commissioned to open the eyes of the
unsaved, and turn them from darkness to light, and from
the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).

Proverbs 11:30 says, “…he that winneth souls is wise” ; put that together with our opening verse and see
that, indeed, we’re luminaries. We take the light of the
Gospel everywhere we go. We give direction and show
the way; we bring fulfilment and joy. These are qualities
of light, and we’re the light of the world.

In John 8:12, Jesus said, “…I am the light of the
world. If anybody follows me, he shall not walk in
darkness, but shall have the light of life.” 1 John 4:17
declares, “…as he is, so are we in this world.” We have
the light of life, and dispense the same to our world.

Sickness, poverty, discouragement, death and all
other works of darkness and evil can’t, and should
never find a place in your life. You’re a shining light;
walk in this reality.

PRAYER
Thank you, holy Father, for enlisting me in your army
of soul winners; and now, I illuminate my world, and
the hearts of sinners are open to receive the message
of your saving grace today, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
