Let Your Light Shine

on February 1, 2012

“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

I’ve often heard it said that we’re the only Bible some people will ever read.  With that being said, I think it’s so important that we carefully examine our actions.  Whether we like it or not, or whether we want it or not, people are watching us.  When strangers see you in a restaurant, in the grocery store, or at a sporting event what kind of image are they getting of you?  Are they seeing your good works and seeing Christ in you?

By living a life that reflects the image of Christ, we are glorifying God.  God commands us to walk uprightly and live righteously.  He knew that people would be watching us and He wants His goodness and mercy to radiate through us.  If we follow His commands, He promises to bless us.

My challenge for you today is to let your light shine for others.  Examine yourself in every action and word.  Strive to live righteously and walk uprightly.  In doing so, you will bring glory and honor to God’s name and receive the blessings He has prepared for you.

“For the Lord God is a sun and shield:  the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.”  Psalm 84:11
