Let your light so shine before men that they may see your moral excellence and your praiseworthy, noble, and good deeds and recognize and honor and praise and glorify your Father Who is in heaven. Matthew 5:16 (AMPC)
Everything good and beneficial that’s in God is included in that word light. God is light and He lives in us. Light indwells us and we dwell in light. We are light in the world and to the world.
We shine as light as we express the life of God in us.
Living free, righteous, holy, or victorious is shining.
We shine as lights by holding fast the Word of Life. Philippians 2:15, 16.
Loving people, being kind to others, forgiving, serving, helping, sharing are ways of shining.
As we live and conduct ourselves according to the Word of God we are beaming and shining the light of the life of Christ in us to the world.
