When we are saved by Jesus, God’s light lives in us, making us light. We matter. We matter to God as He expects us to shine His light wherever we are. Any room we are in, God’s light should radiate from us.
But what does this light look like? It looks like truth and love and glory/beauty. The light God gives us is such an enormous gift and is such a healthy responsibility to look after. We love God and other people. We love them with truth and gentleness, kindness and all the fuits n of the Spirit. We radiate this goodness and truth from God. We radiate as surely as light beams radiate from a light source. We are warm and the shadows/darkness in the room has to leave when we enter.
We necessarily exercise our light by engaging with others and God in the fruit of the Spirit. We need to practice that fruit gift- love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness and self-control in truth. When we do, we are the light of God shining out.❤
