“You are the light of the world. A city situated on a hill cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket, but rather on a lamp stand, and it gives light for all who are in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.
(from Holman Christian Standard Bible®)
Your nature changed when you were born of Yahweh. Now, instead of being darkness, you are light. You reflect His light, but you are light because you are born of Light.
Don’t wait until you “die and go to heaven” to start shining. Throw away all the old darkness foolishness and let your glory bring Him glory. Display His glory along with yours. Moses spent time in the presence of Yahweh in the Tent of Meeting. When he left the Tent, his face would glow so brightly that it frightened the Israelis who saw him in that condition.
Shine in your work. Shine in your gift. Shine in the way you bless your family. Shine in the way you manifest His Spirit’s fruit (Galatians 5:22,23.)
