On April 24, 2013, I was blessed with the opportunity to speak in the high school service at Crossgates Baptist Church. As Christians, we are called to let our light shine. Here is the audio of what I said:
I challenge you. Let your light shine to show others the path to the cross.
As Christians, we have a problem. We are not living as a Christian should! Yes, some are, but as a majority, we are not. Well, since we are talking about letting our light shine, what does that mean?
When you are told to let your light shine (the light given to you by Christ), this means to live in a way that shows everyone around you who you are, what you believe in, and Who you serve. In the first part of Matthew 7:16 it tells us, “They will be known by their fruit.” Live in a way that those around you can see Christ through you. Illuminate the path to Him.
Back to the subject. We have a problem. This is a major problem that has been happening for far too long. Like I said in the second sentence of this post, we are not living as a Christian should!
We have to live and walk in the light. We can look to 1 John 1:7 and see that:
“If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.”
We are called to walk in the light, and have fellowship with one another.
We are told in Ephesians 5:1-10,
“For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light 9 (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) 10 and find out what pleases the Lord.”
We were all once in darkness. Christ wants us to walk in Him, letting His Light shine through us.
I challenge you. Do not let this offend you, for I have found myself not doing what God wants quite often. I challenge you to truly examine your heart, and live for God. You will be surprised what God will do through you if you just let Him!
Put Him foremost in your life.
Let His Light shine through you.

I would like to start out by apologizing to you. I have told you I would be releasing three articles per week, and I have not done so for a long time. I thought about posting and letting you know what was going on, and realized I never did. So what’s this about being ‘under construction’?
What’s under construction? This website. I decided to leave it up so you can take advantage of the resources already here. Soon I will have a new website for you with an entire new look. It would be out first, but I put you first. I am not only working on my website, but will also soon be releasing a website design for a customer and friend that’s focus is helping women with their relationship with God. I will be sure to post again and let you know.
Some of you may also know about my book. Being A Light For God is a book that teaches you to do just that, shine bright for God, and fulfill your purpose in life. As a whole (within the U.S.) Christians have grown spiritually dim. We are afraid to live in a way that broadcasts our faith like a light in the darkness, because we fear what people think about us. This is wrong though, because we are told many times throughout Scripture not to fear. While I’m here I will tell you something God laid on my heart.
In our lives, our relationship is constantly ‘under construction’ just like this website, my book, and many other things in life. It is a never ending cycle, and you can never be close enough to God. There’s always room to draw closer. If you fall, or make a mistake, that is understandable. God will not hold that against you. He knows how our nature has become since The Fall, and that is why He sent His Son Jesus to die for us. In our lives, we are constantly under construction in many ways, and especially spiritually. So remember that daily. It is a daily process to grow closer to God.
We are constantly under construction, and we will make mistakes, but God is there to help us to overcome those mistakes, so take comfort in that fact. When you mess up, simply look to God and He will help you to recover.
