How bright does your light shine?

"They that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever." Daniel 12:3

Do you take a stand for God?

Are you true to the end?

Do you give up your faith?

Do you stand firm in your faith towards God?

Moses was a man who stood firm in His faith.

Elijah stood firm, and was a light in the dark.

Paul had the first light as a missionary.

we essentially are to be like these examples.

They each taught about the God in whom they served.

They let their light so shine!

We all like to have our light shine.

Is your light shining for the right thing?

Do you want to shine so bad that you are willing to outdo your neighbor?

Are you always struggling to be the greatest?

"Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women therehath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. " Matthew 11:11

"And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethern, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands for my name sake, shall receive an hundred fold, and shall inherit everlasting life. But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first." Matthew 19:29-30

It seems such as small thing to hold up the light.

It is not such a small thing when a life is saved through that light.

God will keep that light burning, but if we do not do our part that light will go out.

We are to represent Him down here on this earth.

Jesus represents Him up in heaven.

If we as Christians are not willing to save others only just ourselves it is such a great ingratitude.

If we as Christians are not willing to go out and to rescue others who will?

We do not need to go out and preach to others, although that is good, it is to let the Light shine through our life, our actions, reactions, everything about us.

Do your walk match your talk?

Sometimes an act of kindness will go further than preaching at someone.

Let that Light so shine in your life that it may draw them to the light and away from darkness.

God wants us to show gratitude for Him rescuing us.

If He has rescued you then we should be looking to see if there is not someone else out there that needs to be rescued also.

Do you look to see whom else can be rescued?

We are to be that light to point them to Jesus.

When we are keeping our light in the right perspective then we are showing the reality of our loving Father.

So today my question to you is does God's light shine forth in your life or has it gone out?

Has someone or yourself come between you and God?

Were you a teacher of God's Word?

Were you so on fire for God and now you can't even get a flicker?

Have you lost that light that joy?

If so you can come back to God's love.

He is drawing you.

He is talking to you.

Come back and lay everything at the feet of Jesus.

Let the Savior's love light back that torch a new in your life today.

Let that light so shine for the Father above.

"For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light." Psalm 36:9
