Shine for Jesus
“Wake up sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” (Ephesians 5:14)
“Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)
When we are consumed by the Word of God, Jesus Christ shines upon us and through us. Focusing on Jesus gives clarity and meaning to our lives. For this reason, we must get to know him better every day. He is the one who gives direction on how best to use our time, talent, and treasure in his world. He is the one who gives our lives lasting purpose.
Great things happen when God’s favor shines on us. If we believe in God, and that he rewards those who diligently seek him, then we will spend time in his Word, listening to his voice. This allows us to become partakers in the service of Jesus Christ! And as we serve, his light shines on and through us.
We have the opportunity to become radiant Christians. Jesus is waiting to shine forth in us! And when that happens, our hearts will swell with joy as we see the hand of God at work in our lives and our circumstances. Are you consumed with having your life hidden in Jesus? Are you consumed with a passion to know him better? When we get to the point that nothing matters more than him, our lives gain sharp focus. Jesus Christ’s light shines through us in amazing ways.
How do you see the light of Jesus Christ shining on you? On others? Through you? Through others? How is the Holy Spirit working in your life to help you experience Christ in a significant way?

to see Christ shining through us.
“For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkeness,’ made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.” (2 Corinthians 4:6)
“’You are the light of the world. A town guilt on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.’” (Matthew 5:14-15)
