In church, and in Sunday School, we learned the song, “this little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it shine….”
In the bible, Jesus commands us to let our light shine:
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Jesus tells us that we are the light of the world. And a light is not made to be put under cover, but set in full view that it may shine, and the world may see it and behold the glory of the Father who art in heaven.
The bible tells us that we are saved not by good works, but by our faith through the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. But it also tells us that faith without works is death.
Therefore, those who truly believe in God’s grace, and those who truly receive His Salvation unto eternal life will reach out and touch those in need, so that the world may see it and know that we are of God, and that God the Father in heaven will be glorified through us.
Therefore, let us not give up the opportunity to reach out and touch those in need, that we may lay up our treasures in heaven and touch the hearts of many on earth, and that through us the ungodly will come to know the love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
As Christians, we must always be on the lookout to help those in need. Perhaps it may be an elderly man or woman who can no longer take proper care of themselves, or perhaps it is a child growing up without the care of a mother or father.
Perhaps it is a sick person who needs money and medical care, or perhaps it is homeless person who needs shelter. We must do whatever we can to help those in need as much as God empowers us to, so that God may be glorified through us, and us through Him, and that we may receive treasures in heaven.
