Good deeds shine // 15-05-19

“No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.” Matthew‬ ‭5:14-16‬ ‭NLT‬‬

The light we shine as followers of Jesus is the good things we do for others, not as a spotlight on us so people will think that we’re great, but to light the way so they can see God and how great He is! When people ask why we do the good things we do we must point them to Jesus, because it’s all about Him! He is the One who saves, not me. He is the One with the power to restore, not me. He is God, I’m not! Lost people just need us to light the way so they can see Jesus and receive the life that only He can give. Lord, help me to shine light in this dark world today so that people can see You, Amen 🙏🏼
