In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 5:16 ESV)
As believers, we are not our own. We belong to God, and everything we do and say is a reflection of who God is to the world. Like ambassadors to different countries, we are God’s ambassadors to the world around us.
When we do good as God’s ambassadors, we bring Him glory. We are called to shine His light in everything we do, everything we say, and everything we are. You may say that this is too hard to achieve, but remember that we can do all things with the help of Christ who gives us the strength that we need (Philippians 4:13).
“We need to give Christ a chance to make use of us, to be His word and His work, to share His food and His clothing in the world today. If we do not radiate the light of Christ around us, the sense of the darkness that prevails in the world will increase.”
- Mother Teresa
