Matthew 5:16

In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

Scripture Insights

Let us remember that we are to be a shining example of what it means to have faith in Jesus Christ. We must strive every day to make sure our words and actions reflect his character.

Have you ever taken a tour through a cave system? Often, when you get to the deepest and lowest part of the cave, the guides will turn off all the lights. The darkness you suddenly experience is consuming and overwhelming. But in all that blackness, the slightest glimmer of even the faintest light of illumination will begin to push back the darkness.

We are called to be a reflection of God’s light and glory by demonstrating God’s love, mercy, and grace to the world around us. We are to share our faith with others through our words and actions. In the same way that light shines brightly in the darkness, believers should strive to be a beacon of hope and truth in their communities. Blessing others and offering hope for the lost come through the light of Christ.

Today’s Prayer

Thank you, Lord Jesus, that you are the light that pushes out the darkness. You are the light in the world. Help us to share our faith, and help others to see the hope within us.
