Action: Shine

READ: “In the same way, let your light shine before people, so that they can see your good deeds and give honor to your Father in heaven” Mt 5.16.

THINK: Our light is the light of God in us. We don’t want to appear, Mt 6, but rather God’s presence in us. So we do not hide ourselves. We want others to see God’s power and love in us. In this way, they will glorify him instead of being impressed with our performance. Light represents the holiness, truth, and majesty of God, Isa 60.1; 1 Jn 1.5.

ACT: Do good works in Christ’s name. Speak always about him.

PRAY: Thank you, Father, for putting us in the world as light.

ASK: What can I do now to show God in this world?

Be pithy.

  1. Will be speaking some this morning about how God’s light illuminates men to reality. A blessing it is that we get share in this illumination of the world through the knowledge of Christ.
