You Are The Light…

Manna For Today: Sunday, January 22, 2017


Matthew 5:14-16“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”

The text above certainly suggests that the purpose for light is to shine for the benefit of all who stand in its presence.

My friend, when you become born again, you are born into leadership. Leading is every believer’s destiny; we are the salt of the earth.

God has predestined every believer to be a leader in this world. Consider the following steps you can take to begin being the leader you were supernaturally birthed to be.

1. See yourself as God sees you.

Luke 4:18The Spirit of the LORD is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free.

Philippians 2:13For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.

2. Be willing to be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

Romans 12:2Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

3. Catch the vision of your church and be a part of it.

Psalm 27:4The one thing I ask of the LORD— the thing I seek most— is to live in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, delighting in the LORD’s perfections and meditating in his Temple.

Hebrews 10:25And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.

4. Serve where you have the opportunity to.

Colossians 3:23Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.

5. Be faithful in the small things.

Luke 16:10If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities.

Ask God to show you how to lead in the area He has called you to. God has great adventures ahead for you.

Peace and blessings!
