Let there be light!
“When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the
world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the
light of life." (John 8:12)
Darkness seems to envelope the Arab world these days more than ever
before. The situation in many countries deteriorates from bad to worse.
People put their hopes in political, social or economic changes but they get
disillusioned again and again.
What do we do in face of this darkness? We believe that “It’s better to
light a candle than curse the darkness.” You cannot drive away the darkness
except though shining the light!
One of the series in our broadcast is titled “Light of the World.” It
does exactly that. It’s short and simple. We start with a verse from the
Bible, the real source of light, followed by a focused idea about one area
of our lives and how God shine His light through it. At the end, we leave
the listener with a question to ponder or a short prayer to say.
"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.” (Matthew 5:14-16)
