Matthew 5:16 says "Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Fahter who is in Heaven."
God has commanded us to shine our light before men. The light He commands us to share is not our own light, but the light we receive from the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.
The light of the Holy Spirit in our lives should be so bright that it illuminates every corner of our soul and exudes out of every tiny pore of our being! No matter where you are or what you're doing, people should be able to see that there is something different about you.
For this very reason, it's important that we allow our light to shine in a way that glorifies our Heavenly Father. The light others see is not our own, it's our Father's...therefore, it must be allowed to bring glory to His name.
Ephesians 5:8 says "For you were formerly in darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light." Are you walking in the light? Are you ready to illumine the world with His light? Will you be ready if someone responds to the light you project?
