Are you making Jesus visible to others?
“You are the light of the world. A city 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 men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” Matt 5:14-16 (NIV)
Jesus is the light of the world. When you become a Christ follower, you become His light in the world. As you let your light shine for Jesus, your good deeds will be visible to others and they will praise God.
Writing from prison, Paul acknowledges the Ephesians for their strong faith in the Lord and their vibrant love for the other believers. Their Christian walk became evident to others in their part of the world.
“For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers.” Eph 1:15-16 (NIV)
How did Paul hear about their faith and their love? Could it be that their lives visibly demonstrated their growing relationship with Jesus?
