Let Your Light Shine

Matthew 5 16

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 5:16

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

Let your light shine by doing good deeds so that others will be led to glorify God. There are so many people in need of help right in your very own community. Volunteering your time at homeless shelters, food banks or at some other nonprofit organization that has a place in your heart will help people experience the love and goodness of God. When you love God with all your heart you can’t help but feel compassion for the poor and needy just like Jesus did. Let God’s love shine through you because faith without works is dead.

You Are the Light

Matthew 5 14

 

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 5:14

You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.

 

Jesus is the light of the world and you should strive to be Christlike. Your relationship with the Lord is personal but He wants you to shine as a light for the world to see. Your light shines by the way you live your life for Jesus by doing good and being an example of God’s love and mercy to the world.

Share the Love    

1 John 4 11

 

Verse of the Day:  1 John 4:11

Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

 

God’s love flows to us and it also needs to flow through us.  When we receive God’s love it will change our heart so much that we feel the need to share it with other people.  We can share God’s love by practicing forgiveness, compassion and by praying for one another. God’s love is meant to be shared so let your light shine everywhere you go.

Love and Good Deeds

Hebrews 10 24.jpg

Verse of the Day:  Hebrews 10:24

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.

Let your love for God and your gratitude for His mercy and goodness inspire you to share His love with others.  Let’s motivate each other and encourage acts of love and service for those in need so that our heavenly Father may be glorified.  We need to do something, help somebody, invite someone because if we don’t then who will?

With Love

1 Corinthians 16 14.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  1 Corinthians 16:14

Do everything in love.

 

Because of God’s love for you and your love for Him everything you do should be done with love.  From the simplest of things to the greatest, do it all with the love of God in your heart. Let God’s love shine through you so that others may see His love for all humanity.

Set the Example

Titus 2 7-8.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Titus 2:7-8

In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.

 

It’s not enough to just deliver the message and teachings, you have to live it too.   It’s easy to say one thing and do another but if you really love God you will strive to set the example for others. Live a life of integrity and uprightness during good times and in difficult times. Let your light shine for others to see so that they may be moved to know, love and serve God.

Teaching Children About God

Proverbs 22 6

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 22:6

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

 

One of the most important things we can ever teach children is how much God loves them.   Knowing they are loved by God Himself will give them confidence to shine.  Let’s be examples for the children in our lives and teach them what it is to know and love God and what it is to be loved by Him.
