Matthew 5:14 New International Version (NIV)
14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.
This actually could be Part 2 from my last Monday’s devotional. Jesus is telling the crowd and his disciples to be both salt and light. If you, up to this portion of Scripture in the Greek is says, “You and you alone are the light of the world.”
As men, we are called to be in the shining business. We are lights in an unbelieving world. So you might be asking, “How do I let my light shine?” The answer is by living the Gospel. That means we live a separated, holy, Biblical life. This means we refuse to live worldly. That means we live a Spirit-filled life.
To be a light shiner for Jesus will require every man to step into action. You will have to make a conscious effort every morning. I often will make this prayer, “Jesus, put someone in my path that I can shed your light into their life.” Then be ready for the encounters.
Even today, as I was writing this devotional, I was sent out to return some props we used this past week. The women who owned the props said that her husband have Harleys. She said that her husband was not much on going to church. So, I invited her and her husband to join us on our Vital Bikers Couples Ride.
The action step was being aware of what she said with her circumstances and looking for an opportunity to shed light. The Holy Spirit is always willing to help those who walk in a Spirit-filled life.
Take action today, men, and be a Light Shiner.
Strength and Courage
