This little light of mine? Hell no!
Then relax, I feel you're already squeezing your face and skeptical about what I'm going to say. I have also sang it before and even danced to it. But somehow within me I use to feel uncomfortable, but who cares? It is a popular song that was even sang in a popular gospel movie, but now I care, and I want you to care.
Let me start by saying like the physical light of sun and moon that allows you to see, we also have two light:
1. Little light
Like the moon it is your conscience (voice within), intuition and intelligence.
2. Bigger light
Like the sun, it is the spirit of God.
You can't be a Christian and operate by little light. You're suppose to blaze so much that darkness cannot comprehend it.
Have you been in a condition that after you did something wrong you regretted it? That's your conscience (little light), It cannot stop you from doing the wrong thing but it can condemn you after you've done it. That's the reason a man will keep beating his wife mercilessly and thereafter cry and apologize for his actions, but that doesn't mean he won't repeat it again.
The bigger light can restrain you from falling and also help you overcome temptations.
Let me tell you something about little light, have you visited cities built by people who ain't Christians but intelligent? You can go there and be amazed at the wonderful things you see and think the Holy Spirit must have inspired the beauties.
That is how powerful the little light is, It attracts people to party and catch fun for the moment. Great light attract people, transform them and help them to reign on earth and in the world to come.
Mind you, I'm only addressing that Christian chap that thinks he or she has a little light, that you don't have a little light. You have a big light and that is God. And if you ain't a Christian, you can become one to have a bigger light.
Repent of your sins, ask Jesus to come into your life as your Lord and saviour and you will have that big light. It is as simple as that, even where you are right now you can say that prayer of faith because with the heart we believed and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
And remember let your light shine so much that people would need sunshades to behold it...(just kidding!)
