iShine: Because He lit me up!

It's not just Christmas trees or houses getting lit up this season. People are too!

Recently we heard from 8 yr old Megan Coker boldly share her faith in front of her church family. She's ready to get baptized because she's not ashamed to follow Christ publicly. That's what I call shining brightly!

Megan doesn't have a seminary degree or years of experience following Christ. And nobody is shining for her. She is shining. It's really that simple.

She told his disciples, "You are the light of the world...let your light shine before men; that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven." (Matt 5:14-16)

"Let your light shine" not make your light shine. We don't actually shine. God shines through us. He is light and it's supernatural. Let it happen this Christmas season. Let your friends, family and neighbors see your light. Then they will see your good deeds and praise God. Isn't that what we live for?

Let the light out!
