‘And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever.’ Daniel 12:3
Today, I want to encourage you to S.H.I.N.E. As Christ’s ambassadors in this world, we must be the light that will lead them to the Father. We must exemplify true Christianity in all our dealings. Christ encouraged, ‘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 KJV).
S – Smile – Let the joy of the Lord be reflected by the smile on your face. Be joyful, rejoice, and be glad. The Psalmist said, ‘Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased’ (Psalm 4:7). No matter how sad you are, a smile will help. Always bring the fragrance of a joyful welcoming smile.
H – Hold -your peace, talks less. Think through your response, be calm. Pause before you speak – speak peace. Be reconciliatory in your speech. James 3:2 says, ‘For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.’
I – Integrity – You must have a predetermined policy to be honest. Exemplify performance and character integrity. Build the inner man by the Word of God. Proverbs 11:3 reads, ‘the integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them.’
N – Nice – Be a good person, be kind. Kindness is what a blind man can see and a deaf man can hear. Have a reputation for kindness. Don’t just be right, be kind. Don’t just be strict, be sweet. Don’t just be firm, be tender. You can be tough yet tender-hearted.
E – Exemplify Excellence – If no one is following you then you are not worth being followed. Be an epitome of excellence. Go the extra mile in all you do. Be an example of believers.
Be the Christ you want to see in others. Carry your candle and light the darkness in the world around you. I wish you all great and grace. God bless you. By Rev. G. E. Erhabor
