Let Your Light Shine

It Is Written, Matthew 5:14-16, you are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in Heaven.
If you are a Christian, you are probably familiar with these verses. Most people do not know what they really mean, and a lot of them, do not even try to find out.
Here is a brief description of what Jesus meant. We all know that if you cover or hide a light, it doesn't accomplish its purpose. Jesus said you are a light in the darkness of this world.
When you accept Jesus as your Savior, you have Him with you all of the time, and the Holy Spirit within you to guide you. When we received the fruits of the spirit at salvation, Galatians 5:22-23, and live by them in our hearts, and everyday life, we reflect the light of Jesus. The closer we get to Him, the brighter the light.
If we keep all of this to ourselves, and do not share them with others, it is like hiding our light under a bushel. Our reflected light is supposed to shine in the darkness to show other people the way Jesus expects us to live.
When we share these fruits with others by our actions, they see Jesus light and salvation reflected through us. Make your light shine in today's darkness in the world. God bless you and your family. Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
