The first issue of your SPORTMOM E-votional each month is dedicated to our word 2019 - SHINE.
For God, who said, “Let there be light in the darkness,” has made this light SHINE in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:6 NLT
To see and enjoy the beauty of a finely- cut diamond requires light shining through it. As it is set into a piece of jewelry a space for light to penetrate it is necessary in order for the brilliance to be seen. The diamond requires light to LET IT SHINE.
In order for fine abilities and developed skills of an athlete to be seen requires a choice. Sport involvement is the place for that to happen but the player must choose to go for it...to LET IT SHINE!
It is the light of God shining in and through us that illuminates our being...
...Let the light of your face shine on us, O Lord! Psalm 4:6b NRSV
It is also this life-giving light that penetrates all darkness...
“...[we will] never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
Like the diamond, we have been finely cut by our Master’s hand. We will shine as His light penetrates our being with stunning brilliance... LET IT SHINE!
Let your light shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify the father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:16 HSCB
PRAYER: Dear Father, thank you for the light of Christ you have put within me. May your light shine through me so that others may come to know you. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen
WALK IN THE LIGHT OF CHRIST AND LET IT SHINE!
