Matthew 5:15. “Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick: and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.”
It makes no sense to light a candle and then block off most of the light by hiding it under a bushel basket, does it? What good is the light if it is hidden?
It is our responsibility, as heirs of the kingdom, to let our light shine before men in order to bring glory to God, and to bring others to Him. II Corinthians 4:6 says, “For God, Who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”
That’s our job.
Are we doing it?
