Our words are important. They are valuable. With our words we praise our Father and confess Him before humanity.
But my point is this: we are CREATED to be lights in this dark world. How? With GOOD WORKS. (Matthew 5:16, Eph. 2:10)
“For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” 2 Corinthians 4:6
Being a light has little to do with ME and everything to do with my Father. It’s HIS LIGHT. I am simply a willing vessel.
Being a light has little to do with me, and everything to do with OTHERS. I am simply the hands and feet of Jesus.
So “let your light so SHINE before men, THAT THEY MAY SEE your good works AND GLORIFY your Father in heaven.”
“you are HIS WORKMANSHIP created FOR GOOD WORKS…”
How do I shine? By getting up and DOING GOOD for someone who can’t (or WON’T) do good back to me.
That’s discipleship. That’s shining. And then when they ask why, I “give an answer for the hope that is within” me. (1 Peter 3:15)
Ask God to provide opportunities for you to do good.
Ask Him to open doors so that HE can be glorified and KNOWN by those still in darkness.
Ask for humility, bravery, and an abundance of love to pour out on those you encounter as a result of those prayers.
He will provide, and He will bless. #toGodbetheglory #greatthingsHehathdone
