Today my word for you is simply…”Be a light”. Do not be ashamed of who you are in Christ. Let your light shine for all to see because that light has the ability to guide others out of the darkness. Matthew 5:14-16 is the perfect verse for when it comes to being a light. Today, I want to share it with you in the message translation and I hope you like it…
“Here’s another way to put it: you’re here to be a light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a blanket, do you? I’m putting you on the light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand-shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, your prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven”. Matthew 5:14-16 (The Message)
I hope that you are never ashamed or afraid to let your light shine for Jesus. Always be a beacon of hope for those in the dark.
