Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer had a very shine nose. If you ever saw it, you will even say it glows. (Like a light bulb!) We are all familiar with that Christmas song. Does your light shine bright like Rudolph?
Be Like Rudolph … Let Your Light Shine Before Men!
Not everyone likes the light, most people like the darkness because the light reveals and dark conceals. People don’t want their sins exposed. People are afraid that the light will cause them to be made fun or rejected by others. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer went through being made fun of by others and even rejected by others because of his bright lighted nose. As we know they didn’t like his light at first. They even made fun of him for shining his light. The same happens here, we might be made fun of by shining our light, but we must shine! People will notice when you shine your light!
Dark and dying world
We live in a dark and dying world. A World that is lost and dying to hell. We must be a light in a dark wicked world. We must shine bright so others can see Jesus in us. Matthew 5:14 Tells us we are the light of the World. Light exposes! It goes on to say in verse 16 we must shine our light before others. The light of Christ is to show others the way to go, just like Rudolph used his light to lead Santa at night in dark places. Even Santa and the other reindeer changed their minds about Rudolph. Of course, these Christmas figures aren’t real. They still set as an analogy.
Light helps bring knowledge
This light helps bring knowledge. Remember light reveals and dark conceals. But remember you may think no one knows, there is one person at least that does and that is our Heavenly Father, God. I pray that we can let our light so shine before men. Don’t be ashamed of the light of Christ that radiates from you. Let that light of Christ shine very bright so others can see Christ and the way to Heaven is through Him.
Also, FYI, Santa’s Reindeer are really female! Unlike White Tail Dear, we hunt,
where the male has antler, in reindeer it’s the female that has antlers.
We must be like Rudolph and shine our light before others.
Remember the light of Christ shines the brightest in the darkest areas!
