Let Your Good Works, Which Reflect God’s Presence, Be Seen
In the beginning, God said, “Let there be light” and there was light. From that day until this day, we have had to have light. Light gives us life.
You can take vegetation and put it in darkness and it doesn’t grow well. A tiny ray of light can come through a crevice and vegetation will take to itself new life.
We think of the light of a sunbeam or a moonbeam – you can’t hold it in your hand; nevertheless, there’s a tremendous lesson to be learned. If we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another and the blood of Jesus Christ, God’s Son, cleanses us from all sin.
Jesus said, “If any man follows me, he shall now walk in darkness but he shall have the light of life.” They we think of another thing, it is possible for you to be a light to dispel the darkness in the life of someone else. This is supported by the thought, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father, which is in Heaven.” This particular light we are talking about, we are told we do not have to work it up, and e do not have to turn it on, it is in the process of “letting” just being natural.
The man who is following the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ does not have to have himself keyed up all the time. He just relaxes and lets the Lord live through him and as the Lord lives through him, his light shines.
