Switch On Your Light

"You are the light of the world." Matthew 5:14
Being a missionary doesn't necessary mean that you are in a far-away land sacrificing for the sake of the Gospel. Each one of us are missionaries working as a teacher (or office work, nurse, caregiver, house helper, pilot, etc.) in disguise to bring God the glory. Our main job here in the earth is being the Ambassador of Christ and our work in the secular world is just a cover up so that we can penetrate into their world.
But sad to say that some took seriously the secular work and put aside their main mission that was given to them. It's not about making speeches for Jesus; it's about people observing us. Even though they may not want to hear about Jesus, it is sure that they are watching to see if He makes a difference in our lives. When Jesus said, "Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works" Matthew 5:16 He was saying that before we can speak up we have to show up. Our capacity to shine for Jesus is measured by our good works, which reveal His compelling reality in our lives.
To lead others out of the darkness of sin, let them see the light of Christ in our lives. Switch on the light!
