    LET YOUR LIGHT “SO” SHINE


    LET YOUR LIGHT “SO” SHINE
    Let your light so shine before men, that 
    they may see your good works, and 
    glorify your Father which is in heaven 
    (Matthew 5:16).
    f r i d a y 29
    If the Master had only said, “Let your light shine 
    before men…,” that would have been beautiful, 
    but  He  emphasized  the  intensity  by  including  the 
    adverb,  “so.”  He  wants  you  to  shine  with  blazing 
    intensity. He wants men to see your good works and 
    glorify your heavenly Father. Also notice that He didn’t 
    say, “I’m going to make your light so shine”; rather, 
    you’re the one to make it happen!
    Even Prophet Isaiah didn’t allude that God is the 
    one to make your light shine”; he said,  “Arise, shine; 
    for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen 
    upon thee”  (Isaiah 60:1). You’re the one to arise, and 
    shine! It’s like what we read in Romans 12:11 (AMPC): 
    “Never lag in zeal and in earnest endeavor; be aglow 
    and burning with the Spirit, serving the Lord.”  What 
    a counsel! 
    Again, we observe that the responsibility is yours 
    to fan your zeal aglow. God is telling you what you 
    can  do.  If  you  couldn’t  be  aglow  and  burning  with 
    the Spirit, He wouldn’t ask you to do it. He’s telling 
    you to do it because He’s given you the power, the 
    ability, to do it. 
    Jesus said in Matthew 5:14, “Ye are the light of the 
    world….” Your response should be, “Yes, Lord, I’m a 
    light in a dark world, and my light shines everywhere.” 
    Act on the Word. Act on that idea God has placed in 
    your heart, and bring God’s vision to pass! Get busy. 
    Do something that’ll impact and improve the lives of 
    those around you. 
    If you’re a student for example, beam the light of 
    the glorious Gospel in the academic world! If you’re 
    a businessman, a policeman, a soldier, a politician, a 
    fashion designer, a lawyer or an athlete, impact your 
    world! Change your environment. Through your light, 
    others will see; their lives will be improved; they’d be 
    plucked out of darkness, confusion, poverty, sickness 
    and death. Make a difference in your world by making 
    impact with the Gospel.
    PRAYER
    Dear Father, thank you for the special privilege to 
    be a blessing to my world, a light in a dark world, 
    bringing blessings, illumination and meaning to the 
    lives  of  many  with  the  Gospel.  My  light  shines  so 
    brightly,  causing  your  glory  to  be  revealed  in,  and 
    through me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
