Shine Your Light

Shine Your Light

A lighthouse serves few purposes; however, their main purpose is to act as a guide. They serve as a warning. They act as a marker. Either way you look at a lighthouse, they act as some sort of a guide. It’s the same principle we see when looking at a shining city on a hill. Even if you only have the light from a single candle, that light will be seen from miles upon miles away.

One of the bragging rights for our military is that it owns the night. There isn’t another fighting force that can compete on the same level. I may be a little biased, because of the time I spent in the Army, but either way, we own the night. During night training, everyone is always talking about light discipline. And it’s for this very reason. The light emitted from one flashlight, or one cigarette lighter, or light cigarette for that matter, will give off a light that can be seen for miles. If you have no light discipline, you are literally playing with your life or another nearby.

On the other side of the spectrum, the light you give off has the ability to save a life. The light you give off has the potential to bring people to Christ. I really want you to take a very close look at what Matthew 5:16 says:

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

The light that burns within you, again, has the ability to bring others unto Christ. We have no idea the full impact of our life. Our actions, choices, and light travel many more miles than we can even comprehend. Let the light within you shine so bright that it becomes contagious.
