No matter how bright the lights be of others in your atmosphere, your light has its own special brilliance—you have been given by the grace of God a place, a period, a purpose and power to shine—So SHINE—even in the midst of the bright multitude of others—You Shine—Don’t get caught up in their shine, shine with them…Don’t covet their shine, be grateful for your God-given shine…Don’t smother their shine, even if their shine is not righteous, just be sure your shine is upright…
1 Corinthians 15:41AMP The sun is glorious in one way, the moon is glorious in another way, and the stars are glorious in their own [distinctive] way; for one star differs from and surpasses another in its beauty and brilliance.
No one outshines Jesus…Recall always to mind, your shine is not about you but that you may honor Him that called and appointed you to shine, Jesus, empowered you to shine, the Holy Spirit, that you may bring honor to the Heavenly Father and draw mankind to the saving grace of Christ.
Your responsibility is to shine according to God’s will in the place He assigned you, during the period He assigned you, for the purpose He assigned you, and in the power, luminosity or intensity, He apportioned to you. Be grateful that grace made a place for you and be humble…
Do know that when you shine, envious folk will want to replace your bulb…But do know that if they didn’t ignite you, neither can they extinguish you.
Remember that the glory to come is much more exceedingly greater than that which we can see or experience now—God’s glorious one’s shall shine even brighter in eternity.
Do know when you shine, your Heavenly Father beams from glory at your shine for you are beloved in His sight…Even in the midst of the sun's overwhelming light, your light is wholly visible in your Father's sight.
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven…Matt 5:14-16
Shine for Jesus…when you shine, you shine like no other, for your Father loves the you He made you to be...
I Owe Jesus
