Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. – Matthew 5:16
Do you remember the feeling of being in a dark room, scrabbling around looking for a light switch?
Notice the difference it makes to the whole room when the light is turned on, the full power of the light literally gets rid of all the darkness in an instant. Well that’s what today’s verse is driving at.
God is saying to us here that as Christians who carry Christ through our lives we have the ability to shine Him to the world around us. As Christians we can carry the supernatural love, compassion, power and forgiveness of Jesus wherever we go. We have hope, life and light within is. We can show the world this light through how we live as Christians. We can shine Christ into the darkness of this world, of peoples’ lives and situations and see the darkness leave because of the light we carry.
There are loads of different ways you can do this. Be sure to shine your light to the world around you. Shine Christ today!!
