When Light Dispels the Shadows

cambodiaIn a recent article in Christianity Today, an article chronicled an important change in Cambodia.  A decade ago, this Southeast Asian country was a mecca of sex tourism, and many of the sex workers were only 15 years old or younger.

Cambodia has changed from being a nation of few laws and little social accountability to one that has established anti-trafficking police units in every province and a reporting hotline that is staffed by Christians.

When light dispels the shadows, it’s because Christians are embracing the mandate Jesus gave to the church:  “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven (Matthew 5:16).”

What dark corner of your world needs to be illuminated by the power of God’s love?
