Re:Verse passage – Matthew 5:13-16 (day two) 

Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. vs. 16

“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.” C.S. Lewis

Think of someone in your life who simply radiates the love of Jesus. Do they have a glow about them? If you are thinking of someone like I am, they certainly do. What amazes me is how clearly they understand the source of all hope and joy. They see that it is not anything about themselves, but everything about who Jesus is, and what he has done in their lives. When our lives become more about Jesus, and less about self we become a beacon, a lighthouse, a way point to a world that cannot comprehend light.

If you think about it more, it is a sad reality that you don’t know more people who radiate Jesus love. It makes the ones who do shine brighter, but our prayer should be that we fill the world with his love, so we all can shine.

  1. So true. My soul is delighted when I am in the presence of those who radiate God’s love in all they do.
