And I know this much for sure friends, Jesus loves you and me too! by Chaplain Gary Rayburn rig ministries!
Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
I have this old pair of boots that I like to wear and they are very comfortable. I polished them and put a real good shine on them the other day and everywhere I went people commented on my boots, how good looking they were. Just the day before no one even noticed them they were just another old pair of boots. Then God started showing me that is the way Christian’s are, sometimes we get a little too comfortable in our walk with Him! We need to put a little shine in our walk! Jesus wants us to be a witness. His word tells us to go out into the highways and hedges and compel people to come in so that His house will be filled. We are to go into all the world and to preach the Gospel! The best sermon we have is our testimony of how God has changed our lives. When is the last time someone ask you if you was a Christian? When was the last time you shared your testimony or your faith with someone that you just met or better yet someone that you may have known all your life and they just need Jesus in their life. Jesus says we are to let our light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
I remember a time when I was a young Christian we had a group of singers come to our Church and when this group came in you could just see Jesus shinning in each one of them. They had the anointing of God all over them and I just wanted to stand close to them hoping some of that anointing would spill out on me. That is the kind of Christian I want to be! The choice is ours, and the way we keep that shine is just like you keep a good shine on an old pair of boots. It takes polish, a good brush and good shinning rag and a little bit of work. It takes work, to put a little shine in our Christian walk too! We have to read our Bibles every day, we have to pray every day. We need to fellowship with other Christian believers every chance we get. If we will do that the shine we put out will be worth the effort.
