A Christian’s light can’t be hidden

Don’t tell me it’s impossible to move other people. If you really are a Christian that’s impossible.  Just as what we see in nature is incontrovertible, so is this, because it’s in the nature of a Christian to be like this. Don’t curse God. If you say that the sun can’t shine on you, you’re cursing it. And if you say that a Christian can’t benefit others, you’re cursing God and calling Him a liar.  Because it’s easier for the sun not to heat, not to give light, than it is for a Christian not to illumine others. It’s easier for light to become darkness than for that to happen. So don’t say it’s impossible, because what’s impossible is the opposite. Don’t rail against God.

If we organize our lives properly, these things will certainly happen and they’ll follow naturally. A Christian’s light can’t be hidden; such as bright lamp can’t be concealed. So, let’s not neglect this.
