[The Glory Unveiled]
In the same way, *let your light shine* before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. ( Matthew 5:16 )
Jesus made a profound statement in John 9:5, that He is the light of the world. He made this statement immediately before He worked a miracle. And here, we are admonished to let “our” light shine. The light in us, referred to as “your” light is actually the light of God customized for you. The same light of God in every believer is expressed through us differently. So that the light of God in you may be seen as wisdom in you but seen as music in another person and yet it is exposed as the workings of miracles and healings in others. The light of God in us is the protocol that breaks the laws of life. The light of God lightens the path of men so that darkness is banished. But the reality is that, even though the light of God resides in us, we must *let* the world see it in us through our deeds. Jesus proved Himself as the light of the world by His deeds as evident in the verses before and after John 8:12; 9:5 respectively. Let the world see your light (gift of God). Let your business express God, let your art express God, let everything that comes from you reveal an aspect of God.
Prayer_Bead : Lord Jesus, help me to let your light delegated to me shine before men. Teach me to do the works you have given me grace to do.
