A Shining Face

"Those who look at Him are radiant (Ps. 34:5).

As we go about our day and meet people, doesn't it seem that some of them are more "radiant?" Something inside of them just bubbles out in a positive way. People like this tend to raise the spirits of those with whom they come in contact. Is is just a facade, or do you think there is a reason? If we observe for long enough, we will probably find that the answer is from within. A light inside their lives has been turned on, and it can't help from escaping.

The word of Jesus in John 8:12 say, "I am the light of the world." With that simple statement, Jesus has set a tone for us. When we are "in Christ," we are also in His light. His light should be turned on in us. It should reflect out from us the joy we find in being in Him. A joy from within that should reflect the beauty and radiance of Jesus....The beauty and radiance of Jesus in us! Simply put, a Christian just has more to radiate. It obviously does not mean that we will live a trouble-free life. What it does mean is that we can be forgiven when we do wrong. What it does mean is that our God is with us during trials. What it does mean is that we can have a restful confidence as we have committed to Him. What it does mean is that He will be our refuge at all times. What it does mean is that we can live with Him in Eternity.

"Those who look at Him are radiant." As those in Christ, we have so many reasons to be radiant. The more we reflect ON Jesus, the more OF Him we will reflect. "And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into His likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit" 2 Cor. 3:18).

Have a wonderful weekend and a meaningful worship experience tomorrow. Do indeed let Jesus shine forth from you....Love mark Phil. 4:11
