for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light (for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord. Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them; for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret. But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light. For this reason it says, “Awake, sleeper, And arise from the dead, And Christ will shine on you.” Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil. So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body.” (Ephesians 5:8-17, 23 NASB95)

Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”” (John 8:12, NASB95)

My children, you are My Body.  You are the Church of which I am Head.  My ministers of reconciliation can be farmers or fishermen, homemakers or business executives, teachers or doctors.  If your home and your work have been dedicated to Me, then you are called to be a minister of reconciliation right where you are NOW – not in some far distant place.  Some of you are called to the ordained ministry but ALL of you are called to show forth My Light.  If My Light is truly in you, there will be a quality about your life that will draw others to you – and then through you to Me!
