Let Your Light Shine

Matthew 5:14-16–Ye are the light of the world…Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.


You are the light of the world–We are to help others see what God can do in their life.  We are to reveal this as we walk in the Spirit, walk by faith and walk in accordance with the will of God.  They are to see Jesus in us as our life is transformed by the renewing of our minds.  We are to enlighten those who are in darkness by our life and by our words.

Let your light so shine–Our light is to shine before mankind in the life we live, and the good works that we do.  Our life and our good works are to cause others to glorify our Father which is in heaven.  Let us “glorify God in our body, and in our spirit, which are God’s” (1 Corinthians 6:20).
