“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.
When people in darkness are looking to be rescued, they are looking for the light. They are not interested in the vessel that is holding the light. It could be an old rusty pot full of burning oil or a magnificent lighthouse. The lost could care less. They are only interested in the light. “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life” (John 8:12). Then in Matthew 5:14, He tells His disciples they are the light (light bearers) of the world. This is living the dream supernaturally. Paul said, “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us” (2 Cor. 4:6, 7). Since Christ is in us, when we are surrendered to Him, anyone who is watching our lives should see Christ. For some lost people we will be all of Jesus they will see until the day of judgment.
JUST A THOUGHT – Let’s all let our lights shine for Jesus.
