Where does my light shine?
By Deborah Negron November 29, 2018
We have all heard the topic about shining. Yes let’s shine through… Let’s do our best and stand out and show the best we can be…
Mathew 5:14-15 says,
Even so let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
How and where we shine matters most…
What is it that our life is displaying?
When people see me…
Who do they see?
Who is the person I portray?
Is my determination based on whom I believe in or am I like the wind?
Going to and fro without a true purpose. Am I one who can be identified as having the light of Christ?
Or am I one who shines only on Sunday, in my best attire? Does the hair, the dress and the look display purity, while my life throughout the Mondays through Saturdays show an absence of my faith.
Am I able to demonstrate integrity on the daily or is it just for Sundays when I am discreet.
Am I showing genuine love and sincerity day by day? Or am I just wearing it only on my Sunday face?
Is my faith in Christ seen in my work ethic, my treatment of family and my conduct with my fellowman?
How does my light look to others…
Is it giving enough of Him?
Are folks able to see and find their way to the Lord?
Where am I shining… Is it where others shine too? Oh maybe, is it in church, where the light of others joined with mine brings a glow.
Where do I shine…
Where ought my shining be?
If I shine in the midst of darkness, than God gets the glory.
Where others cannot find their way my light should shine brighter still.
Lord Let Me Be One Who Gives Of Light That Sets Hearts A Flame For You…
I have found that when pure light shines in adversity, when others can catch the glow, it can change circumstances. It can empower those around to have faith as well. The light of Christ Jesus is a gift not to be kept. It is a gift that can abound when it is shared. His love can draw the saddest heart out of despair. It can bring joy after a deep loss. It can bring hope in the midst of loss. The Light of Jesus is the foundation of Salvation. A lost soul can find rest in the one who forgives our worst sins. He can mend the broken hearted and restore the soul.
Again therefore Jesus spake unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life.
