As my husband and I prepared for a cross-country move, I wanted to ensure that we kept in touch with our grown sons. I found a unique gift, friendship lamps connected by wireless internet, which can be turned on remotely. When I gave the lamps to my sons, I explained that their lamps will turn on when I touch my lamp—to provide a shining reminder of my love and ongoing prayers. No matter how great the distance between us, a tap on their lamps would trigger a light in our home too. Though we knew nothing could replace our more personal moments of connection, we could be encouraged by knowing we’re loved and prayed for every time we turned on those lights.

All God’s children have the privilege of being light-sharers powered by the Holy Spirit. We’re designed to live as radiant beacons of the Lord’s everlasting hope and unconditional love. When we’re sharing the gospel and serving others in the name of Jesus, we become brilliant spotlights and living testimonies. Every good deed, kind smile, gentle word of encouragement, and heartfelt prayer produces a beaming reminder of God’s faithfulness and His unconditional and life-transforming love (Matthew 5:14–16).

Wherever God leads us, and however we serve Him, we can be used by Him to help others shine His light. As God, by His Spirit, provides the true illumination, we can reflect the light and love of His presence.

Hi and welcome to this daily encouragement from Our Daily Bread devotional. Today's reading is titled turn on the light and it was written by Sochi Dixon as my husband and I prepare for cross-country move. I wanted to ensure that we kept in touch with our grown sons, I found a unique gift friendship lamps connected by wireless Internet, which can be turned on remotely.

When I gave the lamps to my sons. I explained that their lamp will turn on when I touch my lamp to provide a shining reminder of my love and ongoing prayers. No matter how great the distance between us a tap on their lamps would trigger a light in our home to though we knew nothing could replace are more personal moments of connection. We could be encouraged by knowing where loved and pray for every time we turned on those lights all God's children have the privilege of being light shares powered by the Holy Spirit.

We are designed to live as radiant beacons of God's everlasting hope and unconditional love when we're sharing the gospel and serving others in the name of Jesus we become brilliant spotlights and living testimonies every good deed kind smile, gentle word of encouragement and heartfelt prayer produces a beaming reminder of God's faithfulness and his unconditional and life transforming love. Wherever God leads us, and however we serve him. We can be used by him to help others shine his light as God by his Holy Spirit provides the true elimination. We can reflect the light and love of his presence. Today's Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is from Matthew chapter 5 verses 14 through 16 you are the light of the world, a town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl.

Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house in the same way, let your light shine before others that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Let's pray dear God, thank you for giving us the awesome privilege to be a spiritual light in the lives of those around us.

What an honor. Help us to shine, Jesus, to every single person that we meet and help us to share your unconditional love to the world that needs you. It's in Jesus name we pray. Amen. Today's encouragement was provided by Our Daily Bread ministries
