The significant of light in the life of every creature is important. When ever, there is light every where will be bright; so let your light shine for all to see.
Therefore it is your approach to God, that determines your attitude and countenance. When you approach God with boldness, thankful for His grace and confident that He loves you and He is for you, you can’t help but be full of light. However, a legalistic, religious approach to God steals light. It does not nourish it; because any where there is darkness you will not be comfortable there. So as a child of God, you are to shine as light in the midst of darkness. He wants you to shine with blazing intensity. He wants men to see your good works and glorify your heavenly Father. For when the light refuses to shine, it gives room for darkness to reign. This is the reason why it is dangerous for children of God; to abandon politics in the hands of the children of disobedience. These children of disobedience will continue to vote for politicians, who are their spiritual kinsmen. Christians have no moral justification to complain of bad governance, if they refuse to shine as light in the political scenes of their country. The reason darkness did not overcome Jesus Christ was that, as the light of the world, he shone throughout his earthly ministry. From our anchor scripture, you understand that to shine in this world of darkness requires wisdom. It therefore follows that it is foolish to light your spiritual candle of salvation; and hide it under the table. Of course, it is only a matter of time before the light goes out.

Again, we observe that the responsibility is yours to fan your zeal aglow. God is telling you what you can do. If you couldn’t be aglow and burning with the Spirit, He wouldn’t ask you to do it. He is telling you to do it because He has given you the power, the ability, to do it. If you are a student, beam the light of the glorious Gospel in the academic world. If you are a businessman, a policeman, a soldier, a politician, a fashion designer, a lawyer or an athlete, impact your world and change your environment. You are to be the light of the world, therefore let your light shine for all to see.
