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.

  1. “Being available to the Fathers use means we will have to make some sacrifices” – that stood out to me. A lot of the times I wonder if we hesitate to be of use readily if the need for sacrifice or getting uncomfortable is a huge aspect of it.
    I pray that we will be aware of His voice, His promptings and have a willing heart to be used by Him.
    Blessings to you Dawn 💙.

    1. I think that could be the case. Generally we as humans prefer comfort, and aren’t eager to change our routines. I pray the same because following God’s promptings make life much more meaningful. Thank you Manu! Blessings! ❤️

  2. May we never grow weary in well doing for at just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing, if we don’t give up! There are golden opportunities all around us to love and to do good to one another. Thank you for reminding us that our time is not our own! God bless you, Dawn!

  3. We are the torches that bear the light of Christ. May the Lord help us that our light may never go dim. As I wrote this I remembered the lamp in the tabernacle that was never allowed to go out. Great post.
