Light Reflection-Acts 19:17 Throw Off Hindrances

November 20th, 2023

Today’s Light Reflections is from Acts 19:17.

One of the bright spots in the book of Acts took place in the city of Ephesus.

Jews and Greeks who lived there came under conviction to change their practices. The name of Jesus was held in high honor. Many of those who believed now came and openly confessed what they had done. A number who had practiced sorcery brought their scrolls together and burned them publicly…..In this way the word of the Lord spread widely and grew in power.

The conviction of the Holy Spirit will inspire us to fix our eyes on Jesus and throw off everything that hinders our progress with Him. It may mean burning something that has had a stronghold over us, so that we can break with the past and walk forward with Jesus.

This Light Reflection inspires us to remove anything that hinders our view of Jesus so that we might honor His name in the Year to Shine.
