Matthew 5:14, 16 – “You are the light of the world...let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” In the world there is a lot of darkness – spiritually and morally. Some benefits of light: It expels darkness; it enables a person to see what is around them; it reveals obstacles and dangers. God has placed His supernatural light within us in the person of His Holy Spirit. It is His light that shines in and through us. In John 14:12, Jesus declared that His followers will do the works that He did and even greater. He did spiritual works such as healing the sick and delivering the oppressed. He led the way with charitable deeds like feeding the hungry. In 2015 let us allow our light to shine in greater ways that our great God might be glorified. It takes courage to lay hands on the sick and pray for them. It takes time and effort to reach out to the needy. But let’s do it - others will be blessed!
