Let your light shine
In HIS Presence


Read: Mathew 5:13-16

Let your light shine

Meditation verse:

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven (Mathew 5:16)

As a child of God, you were created for impact and significance. God has put gifts inside of you and He wants you to bless lives with your gifts. Today’s reading reveals God’s mind for you. “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavour, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven”.

During His time on earth, Jesus Christ said “I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work” (John 9:4).Someday, when our time here is over, it will be night-time for us. Would we be able to say of a truth that we let our light shine before men whilst we were on earth? What legacy would we have left behind? Would we be confident to say like Paul the Apostle that, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith”?

Why not become very intentional about letting your light shine? To be Intentional means purposeful, planned or thought of. And.to impact others, you must show up. Show up to love, serve, heal, and minister to the needs of others. Seek out opportunities to use whatever God has put inside of you to be a blessing to others. Show up in season and out of season. Show up whether it is convenient or not.

It’s a new month today and in a about two months this year will be over. Whatever good your hand finds to do, do it.
For God is not unjust to forget your work and labour of love which you have shown towards His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister
(Hebrews 6:10).


IN HIS PRESENCE is written by Oke Chinye.
Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?

He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest."

Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:
Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.

If you prayed this prayer, send me an email at rockteachingministry@gmail.com

I would love to pray with you personally and send you a copy of my book; ‘Living the Life’ to encourage you as you begin your new life in Christ.
