God Shines His Light


For God, who said, Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:6 ESV

When God shines on the outside He gives us His hope, but when He shines on the inside He gives us His challenge to live with the love of Jesus towards others. I shared a part of this earlier this week in a devotional, about how light can reveal some very unpleasant things – (Like big ugly bugs!)

This time around I take a slightly different look in the video. for this week. Also included are the songs – He Keeps Me Singing, Do Lord Oh Do Remember Me and When I Survey the Wondrous Cross (One of my favorites). My prayer is that we can all stay so focused on Jesus that He will begin replacing some of our, not so pretty selfish motivations with His servant’s heart of love today!

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.

  1. Thank you Pastor Pete! Your words, “When God shines on the outside He gives us His hope, but when He shines on the inside He gives us His challenge to live with the love of Jesus towards others” are the perfect accompaniment to the verse I’ve been chewing on these past few days “You O Lord keep my lamp burning my God turns my darkness into light” (Psalm 18: 28). Thank you also for starting my day with a song I haven’t heard in a very long time- “Do Lord, Oh Do Lord, Do Remember me.”
