Let Your Light So Shine Before Men

Let your light so
shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father
which is in heaven (Matthew 5:16).

When you study carefully the words of Jesus in the Scripture
above, you’d discover He didn’t say,” Let your light shine….” Rather, He said,
“Let your light so shine…” In other
words, let your light shine so much, until men see your good works and glorify
your Father which is in heaven. Through this verse of Scripture, Jesus lets us
know that the way to so shine is to
do good works-He equates shinning with good works. So when He says, “Let your light so shine,” He’s saying
in essence, “keep up the good works.”

God wants you to maintain your zeal for good works.

What are the good works? They are works wrought through you
by the power of The Holy Spirit. The Bible lets us know that Jesus performed
many good works (John 10:32). Acts 10:38 tells us that He went about doing good, healing all that were
oppressed by the devil. According to the Bible, you’ve been ordained by God to
do good works (Ephesians 2:10). Jesus said in John 14:12, “……..He that
believeth on me, the works that I do shall he also; and greater works than
these shall he do…..”

You’re anointed to do good works. Therefore, in the
remaining part of 2011, which The Holy Spirit has declared to be our year of shining, keep up your zeal
for good works. Preach the gospel with burning urgency like you’ve never done
before. There’s no better way to shine in life than to share the love of Jesus
with someone else. The Bible declares that they that turn many to righteousness
will shine as the stars forever and ever (Daniel 12:3).

In addition, keep giving in the House of The Lord; be
fervently committed financially in reaching the lost, hopeless and poor in our
society. That way, you’re showing yourself to be God’s peculiar treasure,
zealous for good works (Titus 2:14).


I’m anointed and
fashioned to produce good works. Just like My Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, I
do the works of my Heavenly Father: I heal the sick, cast out demons, raise the
dead and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ with power. I’m rich and thoroughly
furnished unto all good works. I’m a helper, a lifter and a giver. Praise God!
Hallelujah! Amen!


May Our God The Almighty prosper Nigeria
and Israel and defend us from all our enemies in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!
