THE MIND OF CHRIST, SHINING IN THE WORLD

KEY SCRIPTURE: Matt:16 KJV” Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

The Lord said we are the light of the world and so we must shine so much that, men will see it and give glory to God our father.  Shinning means bearing the fruits of righteousness. It is all about demonstrating the word in our lives. Our Lord Jesus led a kind of life, that the bible said His fame went abroad seeing the manifestation of the glory of God.  Great exploits are always demonstrated through faith in the word of God.

How can we shine in a world that has become so secular? The Lord taught in John 15;1-15 that, if we are to bear much fruit, then we must abide in Him. Abiding in Him involves how deep our fellowship with the Holy Spirit is.  The Holy Spirit is the glory of God according to Rom 6:4.He is also the exceeding great and resurrection power at work in us who believe according to Eph 1:19, 20.

We are called to shine   in every aspect of our lives. We are to shine in our moral life social life, business life, marital and every area of our relationship with men.

The Lord said He does nothing without receiving instructions from the Holy Spirit. What you need to do is to Learn to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit. The next act is to learn to wait for the instruction of the Holy Spirit. The Lord said in Matt 7:7, that ask, and it shall be given unto you, seek and you shall find. Knock and the door shall be opened unto you. Humanity is faced with many difficult problems that have no human solutions. I believe if we would learn to ask, seek, and knock before the Holy Spirit, in prayers, we would find answers to these needs. Wherever you find yourself you can make up your mind to shine. Understand that as a child of God, you have a better advantage over the man who is not saved.

PRAYER

Lord, grant me the heart to be diligent in all I do, trusting and following the counsel of the Spirit. Help me to learn to wait on the Holy Spirit for direction as well as being disciplined to wait on Him for ultimate answers to difficult issues. May the guidance of the Spirit bring that needed help to my world in Jesus’ name.

Dan 2:16-19 KJV” Then Daniel went in, and desired of the king that he would give him time, and that he would shew the king the interpretation. Then Daniel went to his house, and made the thing known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions: That they would desire mercies of the God of heaven concerning this secret; that Daniel and his fellows should not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.”
