Word of the Day... January 20, 2013

"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven."  Matthew 5:16

Jesus reminded us that we are to be the light of the world and the salt of the earth. There is a place to let our light shine and proclaim the truth of God. There is also a place in the world for us to be salt.

Have you ever noticed, that people realize were are Christian’s without us even telling them? They know something is different about us, sometimes it takes them a little while but their finger on it, but eventually they get it. They get it because they can see the light of Jesus Christ inside of us.

Do you remember that song we used to sing in Sunday school? This little light of mine I'm the let it shine, I’m going let it shine, I’m going let it shine.  This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it shine. As Christian that's what we are little lights of Jesus Christ!

The religious leaders thought they had eliminated the problem when they crucified Jesus. But now, we his little lights are sharing the love of Jesus everywhere we go.  It is 2013 years later and they haven't managed to put out the light! If we stay in the word of God and close to the Holy Spirit we will remain salty. That is the kind of follower of Jesus that God wants us to be. Everyone needs the saving grace of Jesus Christ! It is in these last days, that we have the greatest opportunity to share his love and his gift of salvation anyone who will listen.

I hope that you have a wonderful Sunday. I hope you take a little time now to share a smile, a kind word, so that someone who is in a dark place might see that little light inside you! Have a Simply Heavenly Day!  :):)
