Commandments of Jesus, Part IV: Matthew 5:16

When we are born again in Christ, we are blessed to have new inclinations and a new perspective. This new creature is present in each believer, but it is not alone. While we live in the earth in these bodies, our old nature competes with the new one made in Christ’s image. Therefore, Jesus says, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 5:16). Letting your light shine requires work and sometimes a great struggle to clean up our act well enough to shine forth the Christ light of the new man.

There will be no Bible Study meeting this week, but I encourage you to consider Commandments Part IV: Let Your Light Shine.
