    Default Is Your Light Shining?

    If you are close in your walk with God then more than likely you are serving Him and fulfilling the calling He has for you...
    Sometimes we get sucked into worldly ways and stop following God's will. We fall away from serving Him...we get lazy. We miss the real blessing He has for us and our families.

    In Matthew 5:14-16 it says:
    Yea are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill can not be hid.
    Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
    Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

    For many years my light would shine and go dim. Shine and go dim. God brought me to my knees and I didn't think I could kneel any further! Boy was I wrong! I have caused my children to suffer.
    I have picked up my light. I'm letting it shine. He's teaching me that I need to follow Him in all ways and serve Him in sharing my victories in Him with anyone willing to listen.
    I encourage you to let your light shine! He's calling His people to serve. Now is the time!

    Just for those that don't know, what do you mean by follow Him, serve Him? How do we know we are following Him?

    2Timothy 2:20-22
    But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and of Earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.
    If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work.
    Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

    1Timothy 6

    We need to seek the Lord in all things. We pray and read God's word. We strive to work for His kingdom. We do this by decreasing self and worldly things and increasing the Lord in all ways. We try to show the love of Jesus to others through our faith, our love, and the lives we lead. The more we do this the more we receive God's blessings in our lives. We find peace and joy in all things.

    Your testimony, write a book, idea call your book (I encourage you to let your light shine! ) Let your light shine I’m guilty of this.

    Your book you will be helping other Christians around the world, because a lot of Christians forget to let their light shine.

    Glorifying Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour. This mercy is the greatest threat to Satan, because he loses many, many souls because of this Mercy offered by God for sinners.

    I am spreading the Devotion of Divine Mercy which teaches that any sinner can be saved if they would only turn from their sin and accept God's Mercy as bought for them by the death of Our Lord Jesus Christ on cross for sinners.

    Default Re: Is Your Light Shining?

    Oh boy.I remember a time when I let my light shine for the devil but when I accepted Christ I had to let my light shine to the same gang of guys that I used to party and chase women with.And that was an experience let me tell ya! They thought that I was full of it and they thought I wouldn't last two weeks as a Christian.But with His help I'm still standing and fighting the good fight.On a positive note one of my old running buddies attends church with me regularly and even shows an interest in accepting Christ because of my shining example. God is good!Amen!
