My Light Must Shine Indeed!

Topic: My Light Must Shine Indeed!

Text: Matthew 5 vs 15-16, Acts 10 vs 38.


I'm the light of God. I beam my rays into the hearts and ways of men. I shine in the darkness of hatred, bitterness, envy and grudges and I remove their sting and bite. I smile through pains and terrors because my light is the might of my God unto victory and joy in Jesus' name. Amen.


" Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven". The words of God above,  quoted from Matthew 5 vs 15-16, are the barometer of a Christian's health and wealth.  You are as heavy as your light. You are as rich as your light and you are as true as your light!

What is light ? Light is not just physical brightness or illumination: light is the appearance of God in mortal man. It manifests as love in the heart; smile on the face; service unto others; truths in all ways and energy of God available in a life to showcase His glory. Light is the evidence of the supernatural in the natural man. It is the proof of divine knowledge and the permanent writing of God on the canvas of the spirit!

 Light is self-revealing: if you have the spirit of God in you; His light will surely announce it! Spirit is within but light is without. In any life where light is missing, it is the spirit that is asleep or dead. Jesus was never angry for a single minute because He knew that everyman's output is the fruit of the spirit within him. The fool is a fool because of a spirit of folly within and around him and the wise is wise because of the spirit of wisdom resident in him.

How do we access the impact of light? By the sort of work it is doing. The Bible says in Acts 10 vs 38 that Jesus was anointed with the Holy Ghost and power and went around doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil. That was light at work. Check out what you are doing: are you producing joy or sorrow? Are you a blessing to your home? Are you partnering with ministers of the Gospel to propagate the light of God or you are among those that say the Gospel is a ruse and all Pastors are fraudsters?

What sort of work is yours? Are you a planter or a supplanter? Are you involved in a pull-him-down project or you are busy lifting up the fallen and rescuing the perishing? Is your bank account fat and you are not bothered about a cry for help? Does life start with you and end with you alone? What is the reach of your light? A kilometer or the entire world? Life is not measured by its intention but by its attention! Christianity is about impact. It is about good works. It is about light.

Today, God will refresh His spirit in you and His light will shine all around you in Jesus' name. Jettison those old grudges and malice. Embrace your wife. Embrace your husband. Let the light of God be of good effect in you. Is it not better to love for the wrong reason than to hate for the right reason? The word of God is there for you: read it and be whole. Ask the Holy Spirit to come anew in your heart. Be zealous for all good works: the world is waiting for your light!

Sing this song: I have the light of God in me/ 2ce.
                        I have the spirit of the Son of God
                        I have the light of God in me!
