“You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors 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.” (Matthew 5: 14, the Message Bible)
You have a purpose! You were designed to be light, and light needs to shine. Light breaks the dark, guides, opens our vision, makes things clearer. We can recognize the light within us—that Love that defies darkness and brings healing—and we can use it freely and without apology.
Your light is God’s own radiance. It is neither something to be afraid of sharing nor is it something to belittle. You have a beautiful holiness that must be made known. You can honor fully that spirit in you, God’s own resplendence, and be the proof of His goodness each day.
Why would we hide what gives us life? Why would we hesitate to be loving? How, in fact, can we really hide the glow of God? Can we stop that divine light from exposing the colors of the world, the diverse and beautiful variety of what God created?
Let’s not keep the saving glory of God a secret. Let’s go public by living as children of light, with a purpose to bring comfort, joy, color, beauty, and brightness to all, and to ourselves as well!
