Let Your Light Shine

Mar 14, 2021


“The church exists for people who are in darkness: so let’s be the church and let your light shine!” – Guest Speaker Joe Martin

It’s no question that we live in a world of darkness that is looking for the light of its Creator. God has chosen us to be salt and light in the world so that when the world sees us, they would see the Jesus that lives on the inside of us. Five ways to shine in a dark world: be clear on your identity in Christ and as a child of God, serve and care for others, “watch your mouth” and be intentional with the words that we speak, lead a clean and innocent life so that in everything we do and say it would glorify God, and lastly, love one another, because love never fails. 

““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.” Matthew‬ ‭5:14-16‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
