“In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.”
Matthew 5:16 NLT
Can you hide a city that is sitting on top of a hill? Its light at night can be seen for miles. If we live for Christ, we will glow like lights, showing others what Christ is like. We hide our light by (1) being quiet when we should speak, (2) going along with the crowd, (3) denying the light, (4) letting sin dim our light, (5) not explaining our light to others, or (6) ignoring the needs of others. Be a beacon of truth—don’t shut your light off from the rest of the world. ( Tyndal Study Bible)
How amazing has this year started? Every piece of scripture is about doing something. You see most things in life take action. You won’t achieve anything by sitting around and doing nothing.
During this holiday on a couple of occasions, I found wanting to quote scripture during a conversation. We were debating a point. The scripture would have sealed the point. Two things happened my confidence dwindled, and I forgot the exact Scripture and numbers. My confidence most probably because I did not know the scripture well enough. So what is the plan of action in my case? Firstly, we all have our devices on hand, so use them. Secondly, build the confidence to be bold for Jesus. Be sure to increase knowledge to be more confident.
Carefully read the six comments above. It is so hard to add to these wise words.
I will say this; I am Born again, I prefer my new life over my old life. I can hear you saying, “actually I don’t believe you.” Well, the thing is I had every worldly possession you can think off, yet I never had peace. Born again and with Jesus in my life, I have inner peace. That is priceless. We all have the ability to reach and touch others lives, do you know how valuable that can be? You can even save a life, or save a relationship. So my prayer is that God gives me the confidence to be His light. Each of us can do our part. It’s not the big things it’s the small stuff that count.
“Lord I Pray for confidence so that I can be that light you command me. In Jesus name. Amen.”
