Jesus told his followers to plunge themselves into the mainstream culture like a lamp in a dark room or salt added to a recipe. He is not afraid of a culture dominated by sin—in fact, the darkness of the culture only serves to accentuate the impact of his light.
Take a minute to reflect on where YOUR life intersects with mainstream culture. Is it social media? In your work? Among friends and peers? Make a quick list of these intersections.
Ask the Holy Spirit to show you one way that you can be a light today in one of those intersections. Don’t dismiss any ideas that come to your mind, especially if they seem small and insignificant. Remember that a small match can light up an entire room. Put your faith in Jesus and follow his lead.
