‘Light of the World’ Award :)

 I was pleasantly surprised and deeply honored to be nominated for the Light of the World Award for bloggers by Mia at calledtobeawriter.wordpress.com I enjoy her blog as she shares Christ especially her openness to discuss Jesus relating to very real issues. I love her my story page where she shares how she came to know Jesus. If you haven’t seen her blog, I encourage you to check it out. 🙂 

This award was created by Joe at Lighthouse Devotions “to honor authors (bloggers) whose presence on the web serve as a shining light for Christ and His Gospel of salvation.” I love that the award was created to honor and encourage bloggers who seek to share Jesus in their blogs. With so many troubles in our world, I appreciate bloggers who share the light and love of Jesus through their blogs. I feel honored that Mia considered me for this.

My hope in blogging is to share the love of Jesus and my experiences of sharing his love with people from all over the world. God has blessed me with opportunities here in my home city to meet refugees and immigrants from all over the world and to share the love of Jesus with them. That is why I felt led to name my blog jesusluvsall because as I spend time with people from so many different cultures, it gives me a whole new appreciation for when Jesus said in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”

What three words do you use to describe your blog?

This isn’t easy because many words come to mind, but I think perhaps- Jesus, Love, Cultures. Jesus because he is the reason I blog. Love because my desire is to share his love. Cultures because I share a lot about interacting with diverse cultures.

In what ways can a Christian shine for Jesus?

First we need to draw from Jesus to be able to shine for him. Jesus said he is the vine and we are the branches and apart from him we can do nothing. For me shining for Jesus means being empowered by him to show his love in very real, tangible ways to people who have suffered in this life. I try to think of the saying that we may be the only Jesus people will see. How can I expect them to hear what I say if my actions and life do not show it first?

What bible verse (quote it)  talks about being a light in a dark and lost world?

Matthew 5:14&15- “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. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven”

What Christian song do you know that has the word “light” in it? Provide a link if available.

This makes me think of Kathy Triccoli’s song, “Go Light Your World.” I love this song because she sings about us going out to be a light in a world of darkness.

 

My nominees in no particular order are:

The Godly Chic Diaries at thegodlychicdiaries.wordpress.com I enjoy reading her posts as she shares about her life following God and encouragements to her readers. I also enjoy reading a blog by someone living in South Africa. 🙂

1 Timothy 4:12 Girl at 1timothy412girl.com Courtney is a college student who shares about her life following Jesus. It is encouraging to know God is raising up young people to take the baton.

The Voice of Peace at thevoiceofpeace18.wordpress.com  She gives a voice for women who have been through a terrible ordeal while also sharing her faith. You can read her posts to learn her story. She shares in English and French being from Canada.

The Life Project at lifereference.wordpress.com Don shares bible teachings that I enjoy and also photos.

Paytej at paytej.com He is a young pastor of a church and shares about his church, ministry etc.

Lene in Japan at songofvirginity.wordpress.com She shares about her life, serving Jesus, and her missions interests.

Isaiah 62 Prayer Ministry at isaiah62blog.com shares Christian messages and also shares about the women and girls Boko Haram kidnapped keeping the girls’ names and stories alive, so the blog shines light on something very dark- human sex trafficking.
