Jesus tells us to let our lights shine! Today, Lord, let our words be true and beautiful, let our actions reflect grace and mercy. We are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it gives light to all that are in the house.
Even if your flame is hidden, it is still there. It stands ready to shine. We may feel nervous about it or unsure about it - but it is there - and it is powerful. It is the very power he works within us to shine the glory of Jesus Christ in present day life, circumstances and relationships.
Ways to Let Your Light Shine
Keep in mind that your aim is to please the Lord, not man.
Speak in ways that are right and true, and balanced with love.
Listen to others. Be slow to anger and quick to listen.
Christ has already determined your value - you are free from the need to please.
Praise the name of the Lord when given the opportunity.
Trust that God will lead you in his ways.
Be who God created you to be, he created you as you for a good reason.
Daily immerse yourself in the Word of the God.
