Let Your Light Shine

Matthew 5:16 NLT, “… let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

 

We have a golden opportunity everyday to let our light shine by showing the love of Jesus. True, there are times when this is easier than others, but nevertheless through Christ we are called to show love. He gives us the courage and ability to do what is best in every situation we face. Even when we don’t realize it, people are watching our actions and they can see the difference Jesus makes in our lives. The good deeds we do should not be done to draw attention to ourselves, but rather to bring glory to our Father in heaven.

Staying connected to the Father through prayer will keep us humble and in tune with His heart. Prayer also keeps our ears open to His voice as He leads us to opportunities to be used for His glory. Being available for the Father’s use will often mean we have to make sacrifices; however, it brings joy to know we are helping others to know Jesus. Plus, we never know what someone is going through; the love we show can help them get through the day.
