...let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16

Our Lord regarded His followers as a select company who belonged to a different world from the rest of humanity. Many of the religious people of His day were worldly and unspiritual, publicly parading their religion to impress others while privately dominated by pride, ambition, greed and falsehood.

Jesus told His disciples that they could not make their light shine by hiding their faith or even worse, sinking to the world's low level. It was only by abiding in Christ and living under the influence and ruling power of the Holy Spirit that they could rise above the world. Only in that way could they be salt and light to a decaying and darkened world.

As true followers of Jesus Christ, our influence on society solely depends on our likeness to Him. We cannot elevate others, especially non-believers higher than we have gone. We must be extremely self-conscious of the witness we are for the risen Christ. The first century Christians out-thought, out-lived and out-loved their neighbors. Their example of purity and compassion attracted countless thousands to the Christian faith.

Insight: Due to original sin, we are helpless wanderers in a lost world. We must experience a true life-changing transformation through a genuine profession of faith in Jesus Christ. God then gifts us with His Holy Spirit and equips us to be shining lights in this dark world. Have you ever considered this Biblical truth?

Open my heart Lord...and help me to think about these truthful words which are taken from Your Holy Bible. I want to live the best life I can...for Your sake. In Jesus' Name Amen

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
