Called To Be Light

You have the power to change people's lives inside of you. And that is the message of the Gospel.
Weyman Dodson


Welcome to God Today, with Weyman Dodson. I just want to encourage you today. Jesus has called us to be the light of the world, you know, all my life as a believer, I’ve had this passion to tell everybody about Jesus, to be the light of the world. I get up in the mornings and I just seek the face of Jesus. I’m spending time with Him. And as I just spend time with Him, I fall more and more in love with Him.

I want to tell you the story literally, just minutes ago, as we’re filming this right now, I met a lady, and as we were shifting from one location to another, she just by chance is in this building that I’m in. As I’m walking by her, I feel the Holy Spirit begin to impress upon my heart, to speak a word to her, to speak a word of encouragement to her. So what I want to talk about today is, being the light of the world. Jesus has given us the Great Commission to go into all the world and preach the Gospel in season and out of season. No matter who you are or where you are, it doesn’t matter what gifting or calling you have upon your life. You have been called by God to be a witness to the nations in this hour, to be a witness to the whole world in this hour of your life. And so, as I’m walking by, I asked her if I could pray for her. And she kind of looked at me like she was a little frustrated, like she probably didn’t want me to pray for her, but she did allow me to. I began to pray for her and prophesy over her life. I began to speak words into her life, and she began to tear up and bend over and she almost fell over. As she’s weeping, God’s encountering her, God’s encouraging her. And this is just today, this is just several minutes ago. This is not on some big platform. Although I love preaching and crusades, and I go often. I love preaching in churches. I love preaching. I love preaching in airplanes. I love preaching everywhere I go. Listen, this is just minutes ago, right here in a building from where we are in a public area, guys.

I just want to encourage you! Everywhere you go, you are the light of the world, and you have the man Jesus inside of you. You have the answer to all things inside of you. You have the power to change people’s lives inside of you. And that is the message of the Gospel. Not only is it to save people, but you have the power of healing because of what Jesus has done on the cross.

So, I want to pray for you that you would step out in boldness in this season and begin to evangelize. You’d begin to declare the Gospel in a new way and every day of your life, whether it be on your job, whether it be as you travel, whether it be with your family or just going next door. Some of us have never gone next door to our neighbors and told them about Jesus. I would ask you, have you ever gone and told your neighbors? If you haven’t, I want to encourage you today to do that. But if not, I want to encourage you also to everywhere you go, I want to declare you are the light of the world. So I want to pray with you today. Father in the Name of Jesus, I just pray right now, I pray for everybody watching this around the globe. I pray God, today, you would light every person up that hears this prayer, that you would encourage, you would cast off fear and intimidation. Lord, that no one would be ashamed of the Gospel, and Lord, that they would go out in power and in joy and in love, and be a light to the world, in Jesus’ Name. Bless you today. This is Weyman Dodson with God Today. Amen.
