Let Your Life Shine

Be a beacon of the love of God.

Luke 8:16

Jesus said, “No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel or sets it under a bed; rather, he places it on a lampstand so that those who enter may see the light.”

Jesus was and is seen by his followers as the light of the world.

Scripture quotes him as saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (John 8:12).

Those who profess being a Christian are then expected to shine the light of Christ to the world.

Jesus called his followers to action.

The Light is God’s unconditional Love.

It seems that the world has many fans of Jesus…but not so much followers.

There are many who profess Jesus as “Savior” – but that’s as far as it goes.

They fail to see that Jesus didn’t ask for fans…he asked for followers.

That demands action…on behalf of those who don’t have power…on behalf of those who are poor, left out or in need of healing.

Let your light shine on them!
