PHOTO FRIDAY: BLAZE

LUMINOUS CHRISTIANS

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

The best argument for Christianity is a consistent Christian life.  There is no argument against the silent eloquence of holiness.  Actually, a lighthouse building would be dangerous but for the light it sheds abroad, and so it is with us.  We may be lighthouses without light.  Ships can break themselves on the rock.  It is not merely what we say, or what we do, but what we are that matters.  This is the witness that is convincing.  The greatest thing about us is often our unconscious influence.  Second Corinthians 4:11 says, “that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.”  “Manifest” is a word meaning  “brilliantly seen”.  We accomplish more by our radiations than by our exhortations.  May God make us luminous Christians. That’s what the light of Christ does for us.  Have you ever put a candle within an alabaster or onyx vase?  This is commonly done in Egypt.  When a light is put inside, the whole thing becomes luminous.  That’s exactly what happens when Jesus Christ comes into our hearts.  We become bright, luminous.  Other people can find their way to God through the light we shed abroad. 

BE ENCOURAGED!  BE BLESSED!
