The light of the righteous rejoices, But the lamp of the wicked will be put out (Proverbs 13:9, NKJV). It is understood that Christians radiate something from their personality; it is ideal when that which is radiated is the “light of Jesus’ life.” It is not only ideal, it is something the Lord wants and expects. For many in this world all that will be known of the gospel is the person who lives the life of Christ. How great it is, don’t you think, when one who does not know Christ sees the radiant joy of life in one of His saints? On the other hand, the wicked also has a light, but that which comes forth is not as bright (not even close), and whatever “brightness” might exist it quickly fades into darkness.
