- Invite Jesus to light up your life with His light. It all starts with Him.
- Believe and have confidence that the Light in you is more powerful than the darkness, wherever you may go. The Light in you always overcomes darkness, never the other way around.
- Let your Light shine boldly and brightly through small and large acts of love, generosity, hospitality, and grace.
The people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.
Matthew 5:14-16 (NIV)
You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
Matthew 5:14-16 (MSG)
You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colours in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.
Acts 13:47 (NIV)
For this is what the Lord has commanded us: ‘I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.’
John 1:5 (NIV)
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
