Shine, Shine, Shine
By Karen White
“ Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven”. Matthew 5:16
Ever walked into a room, switched on a lamp and nothing? The lamp is unplugged. That is how it was before we became a Christian. Before we were born God provided everything we need in order to shine for Him.
He loved us enough to give His son to die so that we may be made sinless. But because He desires for us to love Him, He left it up to us whether to “plug” into Him or to live in the darkness. Just like the lamp, we too need a source of power in order to shine. God is our power source. He is to us what the electrical outlet is to a lamp. Have you ever been lit up by God?
You have? Great! But not only does God desire for us to “plug” into Him but Matthew 5:16 instructs us to let our light shine before others so that He is glorified. As Christians sometimes our plug gets loose. Maybe we aren’t spending enough time with Him through prayer, worship, or Bible study or maybe we are living in the darkness (sin). When that happens our light dims. But the good news is that we are still plugged in to God’s power and through repentance we can once again shine brightly. So Shine, shine, shine!


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
