Let your Little Light Shine

Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.


The world needs to see real Christianity, not “put on’s”.


NOT - like Ezk 8 - the leaders of Israel worshipping false gods in their imagination.  (The condition of Israel was because of her leaders.)  So it is in the world and in the church today.


Men like Daniel, who is able to prove that serving God is better mentally, politically, and every other way than worshipping and serving idols.  (Daniel and his three friends refused to eat the kings meat in Daniel chapter 1.)  This world needs men like Daniel, who would rather pray than live.  (Put in the lion’s den because he wouldn’t quit praying.  See Daniel chapter 8.)


The problem with leaders who worship idols in their minds while outwardly serving God is that they are double minded.  Because they are double minded, they will not stick with some of the finer points of worship, therefore they will be unable to point out to their followers these same fine points of worship and holiness.  Little by little, Christianity will fall by the wayside, while the outward symbols of worship and holiness remain.  Christianity will wind up being nothing but a hollow shell.
