I live right across the Ohio River from the small town of Rome, Ohio. Last year on the Fourth of July my wife and I heard some noise about 10:00pm and looked outside and discovered that we could view the Rome fireworks celebration. We sat on our front porch and enjoyed the display.
I had forgotten about the Rome fireworks, but we heard them again this year, and once again we stepped outside to check out the fireworks display.
I doubt that anyone in Rome, Ohio even knows that I exist, let alone that I have benefited from their annual fireworks celebration.
This just reminds us that we never know who will see the light of the gospel as we let it shine in our lives. A Christian life can do much more than we ever imagine to spread the good news about the salvation that is offered in Jesus Christ!
“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.
