We are ALL Called to be a Light...




“You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it salty again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless. “You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father..."

YOU are the salt of the earth! YOU are a light for Jesus Christ! To shine His love throughout the world! 

We are all called to be a light for The Lord! I mean... What’s the point of being a Christian and not letting your light shine? I don't know about you, but when I gave my life to God I wanted to go to every bible study, church service and tell people what Jesus done for me. Who He is and how His love is never ending. So why as Christians do we come into this place called the 'comfort zone' and become comfortable in just going to church on Sundays and forgetting that we are called to do so much more then just attend church, or have a personal relationship with Jesus. Jesus tells us to go and make disciples (Matthew 28:19) to go be that light and NOT letting your light hide. 

But how? How can we be a light, how do we make disciples without going around and bible bashing everyone? I mean.. What does shinning your light mean??
  • Showing love
  • Showing kindness
  • When we go a second mile when others won’t or can’t be ‘bothered’
  • When we risk looking like the fool for Christ where others dare not
  • When we show forgiveness towards others
  • When we honor and show others respect
  • God is light so showing his grace 
  • When we do just what Jesus would do in the same circumstances, our light shines!
Choosing to take every opportunity to let your light shine! To let God's love show in a world that is so broken. 

We are in full time ministry!! We are to live out our walk with Jesus daily That you are not just a student living that day to day school life but you are also a missionary on a mission, ministering in the school.That’s your greatest opportunity of letting your light shine. So next time you walk down the street, remember what you are here for and who you belong to!

Make a list on areas in your life that you can let you light shine and make it happen!! Think about what you’re involved in or even some ideas of opportunities to let your light shine. Such as... 
  • Blessing someone with that $5 you have
  • Encouraging a classmate or friend
  • Going up and talking to that person who is alone.
In our everyday lives, we can take the opportunity to go out our way to just bless someone, talk to someone. We are called to reach our generation! Our light should shine none stop! Letting it shine, in you community, your school, your home and even when you’re just going to the shops or playing sports Saturday morning.

In your life just by choosing to live it for Jesus and offering yourself up as a living sacrifice. Living an ordinary life to do the extraordinary! Choosing to, in everything follow Jesus! That’s your calling!! You have been called for such a time as this to make a difference, to reach your generation and to let your light shine. 

So will you do it? Will you make that choice to let your light shine and not to hide it?
