Evidence of God’s Presence

Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven. – Matthew 5:16 (NRSV)
What evidence of God’s presence do you see right now? Do you still perceive God’s love amid all the evil you encounter in this world? If you cannot find one, are you willing to be God’s light to those around you so that they may see and experience God’s love through you?
Our good deeds are acts of worship to God. God made a people for himself so that they would serve as his people, name, praise, and glory (Jeremiah 13:11). He created us for his own benefit in order for us to spread his reputation and help others come to know and accept Him into their life. If we, as God’s children, do not see goodness all around us, let us shine our light by showing the people around us God’s goodness and love. We are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden (v. 14).There may be much evil in the world, but the goodness of God shines through it all when people show love and compassion to one another. God is love. When we act compassionately, we reveal God to the world.
Lord, help us live a life that shows your glory. Amen.
