Light it Up!

Matt 5:14"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. 15Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.
Jesus called YOU the light of the world. Light is meant to illuminate...it should be visible...it should shine! I want you to hear me tell you today that YOU have a gift...to light up the space that you occupy...in the office...in the kitchen...at the grocery store or in the restaurant. You were created to be lifted up, a city on a hill that cannot be hidden.
Too often we take this light and hide it. We lack self-esteem and confidence. What's the problem? We've forgotten what Jesus said about us. The circle of influence that you have is waiting to be "lit up" by you today. When you walk into the office, light it up. When you come home after a day filled with meetings and you see your spouse, light it up! Don't put your power to shine under a bowl! Let the world see your good deeds and glorify and praise the God that made YOU!

You are fearfully and wonderfully made!
