Let Your Light Shine

Ephesians 5:8-9
For though your hearts were once full of darkness, now you are full of light, from the Lord and your behavior should show it. For this light within you produces only what is good and right and true.

Christ is the ultimate symbol of light. He brought hope and salvation to a dark and sinful world. As a child of God, it is important to follow the example of Christ, to become beacons of light to those around us.

In the beginning, the earth was empty and cloaked in darkness. God said, "Let there be light" and God saw that it was good. He then separated the light from the darkness. Light is necessary for visibility. Without light, how would you know what direction you were going? Light ushers clarity. For someone stumbling in the darkness, the light of a new day can definitely bring hope. Light also emits warmth and brings security. Light can be very calming in the midst of darkness.

As Christians, we can shine our lights by being patient, loving, giving, caring, kind, and joyous. We should not be judgmental or easily angered. Living a life that is holy and righteous are definite ways to shine brightly to others. Learning to live in the light of God's love puts all things into perspective.

Christians act as lighthouses for sinners; those lost in darkness of sin, to those who are hurting. We need to realize that our lives are constantly being watched and scrutinized by the believer and the unbeliever. Many are counting on our lights to help lead them to safety, to show them the way to hope, change, deliverance, and salvation. It is imperative to keep your light burning brightly at all times. Sometimes you are the only light someone may see. You are the only smiling face, the helpful hand, the kind word.

A light without its source of power is useless, but when it's connected to God, the true power, it will emit radiant light that burns brightly. Always stay tapped into the source. Guard your reputation, do what is pleasing unto the Lord, and emit the light of Christ.
