Let it Shine


Have you ever heard the children’s song, This Little Light of Mine?

This little light of mine/I'm gonna let it shine
This little light of mine/I'm gonna let it shine
This little light of mine/I'm gonna let it shine
Let it shine/Let it shine/Let it shine oh yeah!

I am reminded during this time of year that we really are to let the light of Christ shine in us. 2 Corinthians 4:6 says: For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.

We spend a lot of time putting up Christmas lights on our homes and on our trees, so they will shine. I pray we spend time in letting others know about the light of God, and remember this next verse in the song.

Hide it under a bushel Oh no!/I'm going to let it shine
Hide it under a bushel Oh no!/I'm going to let it shine
Hide it under a bushel Oh no!/I'm going to let it shine
Let it Shine/All the time/Let it shine/Oh yeah!

Let your light shine - especially at this time of year. Amen?

Have a good Godly day.
