This little light of Mine

Let you light shine

Matthew 5:16

Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

The little songs that we learn in our youth may be simple but the truths they contain are powerful.  The choirs “This little light that shines, I going to let it shine” is an example of this.  And why do we let it shine?  Is it so that men can glorify men because of all the good I am doing, or is to the glorification of God for the work that he has performed in me.  Of course it is the latter and yet why do we deep down want the glory to be directed on us? 

The answer is another simple truth and that is the sin nature is still alive and is in a battle against the spirit nature.  Do we hide God in our life or do we put Him on display as in the example of the candlestick so that all around us we are believers.  Do we include the simple truths of the scriptures in our everyday conversations?  Does our conversation take us from the Word of God or bring us back to His word?  This is why we need to stay in God’s Word and hid it in our heart.  Live a life so that then others see light they will glorify your Father in heaven for the change he has made in your life.  One last thing about this song; do not let Satan or the world blow it out!
