Make your light shine, so that others will see the good that you do and will praise your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:16 CEV)
We are the light of the world. God has put us in places where we are to illuminate this darkened world. As the morning sun shines sweetly at dawn, we are also a welcome sight to all that see our light shine. We shine if we do good works. With our godly living, we testify to those around us that our Most Holy Faith works in us and that the Most Holy Church is exalted for the glory of Christ. We are here to show the world the truth we received from Christ through our thinking, our speech and our lifestyle. We are to obey God’s words faithfully for His glory, which is our aim. It is also for His greater glory that we demonstrate to others our Christian faith through good works, so that they may imitate us, and in the end, be converted to the Church and glorify God with us. Let us be intentional in doing good for others with the goal of bringing them to the fold. The world is waiting for us to shine upon them for guidance, warmth and salvation. Keep your light burning and shining!
