7 Ways to Shine

Matthew 5:14, Being Lights for Christ, Shining our Light so men will glorify God
Jesus commands Christians to be the light of the world (Matthew 5:14).

What does this mean? How can we shine our light instead of hiding it (Matthew 5:14-15)?

1. Remember we've been called out of the world's darkness (1 Peter 2:9)

Live gratefully and deliberately. 

2. Have fellowship with Jesus and other light-bearers (1 John 1:7). 

Be committed and accountable to other Christians (Hebrews 10:24-25).

3. Live a godly life filled with good deeds that give God glory (Matthew 5:16). 

Do the things God prepared for us (Ephesians 2:10).

4. Obey God (Ephesians 5:8-9). 

Jesus says this is the true test of whether we love Him (John 15:14). 

5. Find out what pleases God (Ephesians 5:10).

Study His Word and seek His guidance (Jeremiah 9:23-24). 

6. Separate from dark things (Ephesians 5:11-13). 

Don't let the world pollute our faith through false philosophies, immoral values, entertainment, reading, and music that glorify sin. 

7. Expose evil deeds but don't focus on them (Ephesians 5:11-14). 

Don't be ashamed to speak up for God's values but don't focus on evil details.
