Shine Brightly

“You are the light of light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.”
Matthew 5:14 (NKJV)

In order to produce light and power there must be an energy force. In the home we use electricity or some other form of power, and when we connect to that power supply we receive both light and power.

The same is true with Christians. In order to produce light in our lives we need to connect to a power source. That power source for us is Jesus Christ! John 1:4-5, 9 says, “In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness… That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.”

Romans 13:12, 14 tells us, “The night is far spent, the day is at hand.  Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light…. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ.” In order to connect with His power we must put Him first in our lives. He must be first—second place will not do!

When we put Jesus Christ first in our lives, the power supply is connected and our light will shine brightly!!

Father, God in heaven, please help us to see, to recognise, if we put anything in our lives before Jesus Christ, anything that is blocking our light from shining.
