"Here's another way to put it: You're here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We're going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don't think I'm going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I'm putting you on a light stand. Now that I've put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you'll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.
Do you really want to bring Glory and Honor to the Father? There is no better way to do it than to Shine for Him! Live your life in such a way that it catches people's attention and when it does be prepared to explain your reasoning and motivation. Let the world see you as you walk in your new character...don't hide it or turn it down...this light was meant for the world to see...so start shinin baby!
