Matthew 5:16

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

When Moses went up into the mount to commune with God, he received a revelation of God’s character, His holy Ten Commandment law, and a blueprint for the sanctuary. All of these were lights shining from heaven intended to attract God’s people to a better relationship with Him. Moses was so positively impacted by this encounter that his face glowed with the glory of God (Exodus 34:29-35).

As a result of Christ’s ministry while He lived on earth, many believed in God and were saved. Also, His closest followers were given the power to heal and cast out devils. On one such occasion, Peter and John, through Christ, were preaching about the resurrection from the dead. They were then put into prison until the next day. When they were set in the midst of the rulers on the next day, and asked by what power and in what name they performed these miracles, they said we preach the gospel in the name of Christ. “Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus. And beholding the man which was healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it.” Acts 4:13, 14.

In these two examples we see people of God so filled with His power and glory that people with whom they had contact could see that they had been with God. This is possible today. When we daily spend meaningful time with the Lord, we will be like the moon reflecting the light of the sun. It will be a natural outgrowth of our encounter with God. Our encounters with God will enable us to be an influence on the lives of others. They will see the evidence of our relationship with God and glorify Him. Be a shining light in the midst of this dark world–Jesus was.
