When I was @ the Pastor’s Prayer network this morning I was thinking about Jesus’ words in Matthew 5:16. We were talking about having a stronger impact on Marshall County as Christians. This is a familiar verse with several important applications: (1) let our light  “so”  shine. let it shine so much that – – – (2) before men – I’m thinking particualry  & especially before the pre-Christian world as well as before Christians. (3) that they may see your good works (4) and then your know what? – – – this will glorify our Father in Heaven. We downplay works as far as salvation is concerned (and we should) but as far as our impact on the community – they need to see our good works. We always want to give God and bring God glory. But as far as I am concerned this is not the way we usually think of gloifying Him.

Prayer: – – – Heavenly Father, help us bring You glory by doing good works before men. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

 God bless us as we seek to glorify Him.   Larry
