The words of Jesus. Easy to read. Not always easy to live by. But live by them we must.
If we ever struggle to know what the will of God is for our lives then we all we need to do is catch a hold of some of the words of Jesus and live by them.
‘Let your light shine before men that they may see your moral excellence and your praiseworthy, noble, and good deeds and recognise and honour and praise and glorify your Father who is in heaven’ [Matthew 5:16, Amp]
We must SHINE for Him. Here’s how…
…show off our moral excellence – the quality of doing what is right and avoiding what is wrong
…doing praiseworthy, noble and good deeds
We must SHINE for Him. Here’s why…
…so that people will recognise, honour, praise and glorify our Father in Heaven. They will see Jesus in us.
Easy. Difficult. Comfortable. Inconvenient. I think we have to get over ourselves and count these as irrelevant and just get on with living life for Jesus…and SHINE. What do you think?
