We, as God’s people, filled with His Spirit, respond to the light of the Lord. Notice when we have the light of the Son on us we can respond in the Spirit of God–raise our hands in praise; our faces may light up and the radiance of God is upon us. We can witness to people who are living in a dark world–we may be able to share God’s love with them.
