Matthew 5:14-16 You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. #Bible
Whether we know it or not everyone around us is watching one way or another. Jesus is saying shine or reflect the light of God so that others see the Love of God upon us.
The light of God is our human reaction to Gods Love upon us. God’s light is our lives directed by His Law written upon our hearts, and His Love pouring through us to those around us.
The obvious reason to let our light shine, is not to be ashamed, or continue to live in the dark ignorance of our life before we received Jesus the Christ as our Savior.
We are born again into the marvelous Light of God, knowing now the truth of His Love found in the Gospel.
As new creatures in Christ Jesus we need not worry but confidently shine the fact that we are children of our Father God and our Big Brother and fellow worshiper of Elohim is Jesus the Christ.
