Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

Our Responsibility As A Light – Sixth Night

Colossians 1:12  NKJV

“…giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.”

With every inheritance comes responsibilities. Christians have a responsibility to be a light everywhere they go and in everything they do. The light within them is to be shared. Our task is to spread light, to illuminate the world with the light of God’s Word.

Matthew 5:16  NKJV

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Everything we do and say should point people to God. When people look at us they should not see us, instead they should see Jesus shining through us. There are people watching each and every one of us. May what they see be the light that they need to create a hunger for God and the things of God. As the heavenly bodies shine forth  in brightness against the blackness of the night, so the lives of true Christians lighten the moral darkness of the world. We are to shine as lights to both the lost and the saved.

Matthew 5:14-16  NKJV

“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”

 

As the moral climate of this world becomes darker and darker it is very important that Christians let Christ shine through them. Darkness will not go away by itself. By allowing the light of Christ to shine through us we are in essence creating more light, which makes the darkness disappear.

 

Father,

Thank You that You have qualified me to be a partaker of the inheritance of the saints in the light. Holy Spirit, help me to fulfill my responsibilities. Let everything I do and say point people to You, O Lord. When people look at me may they see Jesus shining through me. May what people see in me be the light that they need to create a hunger for You within them.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
