Shine: Matthew 5.16 (UPDATED)

  1. 2. Matthew 5:14-16 (NIV) You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 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. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.
  2. 3. Light represents Truth. Jesus: GO PUBLIC about who you are in me!
  3. 5. Matthew 5:14-16 (NIV) You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 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. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.
  4. 6. If you allow yourself do what you are, you’ll stick out like a sore thumb in a world of clones.
  5. 7. Evangelism depends on who you are, not on what you’re not.
  6. 8. We are light not because we qualify as light, but because the Great Light of the World, Jesus, shines from within us.
  7. 10. When you try to go unnoticed, you hide Jesus who lives within you. When it comes to evangelism, antisocial behavior is anti-Christian behavior.
  8. 11. God’s power is made perfect in your weaknesses (2 Cor 12:9) !
  9. 13. 2 Corinthians 4:5-7 (NIV) For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. 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. But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.
  10. 16. Your greatest pain could become your greatest joy when you let God use it to bring someone closer to Him.
