If you're a Jesus follower, you are meant to shine. It can be easy to think that hiding in the shadows is humility, but it really isn't. God doesn't any get glory from you hiding your light.
Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill.
If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand.
Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives.
By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16 MSG
Destiny Key: Take some time to ask God what lies you're believing that are holding you back from shining brightly.
