Topic: YOUR LIGHT AND GLORY ( part 2 )
Text: Matthew 5:16
16: Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
In part 1 emphasis was laid on glory, here I will focus on YOUR LIGHT. Light is not needed where there is no darkness, the presence of darkness calls for light. The first point I want to make here is that the world is a dark place, the atrocities in this world is synonymous to darkness.
Terrible things happen in the dark, the evil happening in our world shows that the world is a dark place, but God placed us here to lighten it up, we are expected to make this place better, use good to conquer evil, putting things right around us.
Look this scripture James 3:13 Who is there among you who is wise and intelligent? Then let him by his noble living show forth his [good] works with the [unobtrusive] humility [which is the proper attribute] of true wisdom.
Our good works must outshine the evil in this world, we can’t fold our alms and allow evil men to continue to perpetrate evil, we shouldn’t allow darkness reign where we are, we are light to this world, everyone of us is expected to shine wherever he or she is, it is like lightening up a house, the light in the kitchen can’t extinct darkness in the room, there is a bulb that provides light to the room, another for the toilet, in like manner while I provide light at my own end, you’re expected to provide light at your own end also, and by that we put out darkness, men seeing our good works will bless God for us. How can we live in luxury while we watch people lavish in poverty?
Our expression of God’s love towards men is the beginning of lightening up our world, the good thing is that as you touch people’s heart they go places to replicate what you have done to them, as someone is blessed through you, he or she learnt good lesson from you to be a blessing to other people.
God placed us here that we might make the difference, different and better way of handling like matters, and relating with people. Life just seems good as we make people happy. Jesus was clear about this in Matthew 5:15 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
God put us wherever we are to extinct darkness, darkness should not rule where we are, evil men shouldn’t prosper, look this scripture also Ephesians 5: 11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. As light is more powerful than darkness so are we empowered by God to stop evil practices at home, work places, and every where we go. It is important you let your light shine. God bless you.
* Use me Lord to extinct darkness.
