The Light That Enlightens

The light that enlightens
The world… for all to see
Shines brightest in the darkness
And its found inside you and me

Though our light has the least effect
When we are …in the light
But shines its way into the hearts
Of those lost in the darkest night

So let’s let our light shine
For all the world to see
The embodiment of Christ
Who died to set us free

Let our actions speak louder
Than our words could ever say
And emboldened other hearts
To mimic us along the way

Because our actions tell the most
About what we believe
A much bigger story to those
Who might perceive

That we talk a good talk
And we surely mean well
But our actions are not in line with
The story we’re trying to sell

So let what we know in our hearts
Shine through all we say and do
And be the light that enlightens others
To Follow Jesus too!

Power Verses:
Matthew 5:16 (NIV) “In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

1 John 1:1-7 (NIV)”This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin.”
