“SHINE”, IS WHAT WE LAMPS DO

Philippians 2: 9Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 10that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,in heaven and on earth and under the earth,  11and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. 12Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed (Says Paul), not only in my   presence, but now much more in my absence; continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling-

DOING WHAT WORK?-

John 6:  28Then they asked him, “What must we do to do the works God requires?”  29Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.”

As John was a lamp (John 5:35), likewise are we (1Cor 6:19). Jesus Christ Our Lord is The Light (John 1:4-6; 8:12; 9:5), therefore the Light that shines from within us is Christ Our Lord. We were told in (Matthew 5:16 “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.”

Ephesians 2: 10For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Colossians 3: 23Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, 24since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

Be filled with the Spirit and let your light shine.
