Let Your Light Shine

 

   Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel but on a candlestick and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16


   This passage gives us a description of what we are supposed to be doing as Christians. We are supposed to let our light shine. How do we let our light shine you may ask? Well by being as Christ was. Doing good deeds without expecting to be rewarded on earth for them, helping those who need help, not judging our brethren etc. All throughout the Bible we are given examples of what is expected of us. We cannot hide our light because then it is not effective. Our light is supposed to burn so brightly that it cannot be hid.
   We are always being watched as a Christian. Once we tell our friends coworkers or whatever we are a Christian they are always watching us to see if our lives coincide with what we say. People are always looking for a better way. If they have watched us for awhile and see we are different we are happy we are more caring more loving gentler after a while they will want what we have and that opens the opportunity to witness.
   If we go out and start yelling at everyone you need to be saved then it will only anger those people. We are supposed to let them see our light so they will want what we have. Not everyone is called to be an evangelist or teacher or pastor but we are all called to be lights.
   So today as you go forth try to let your light shine a little brighter. You never know today might be the day someone comes to you and asks you how to get what you have.
