Let Your Light Shine

"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."1

According to an article in the Sermon Fodder List, Edward Kimball, a layman, gathered the nerve to share his Christian faith to Dwight L. Moody, a shoe salesman, who accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior. Dwight Moody became one of the greatest evangelists of his day. The world renowned Moody Bible Institute in Chicago was founded by D. L. Moody. By way of interest, I studied at and graduated from the Moody Bible Institute quite a few years ago now!

"But, do you know ‘the rest of the story?’ Dwight Moody went to England and worked a profound change in the ministry of F.B. Meyer. F.B. Meyer, with his new evangelistic fervor, influenced J. Wilbur Chapman. Chapman helped in the ministry of converted baseball player Billy Sunday, who had a profound impact upon Mordecai Ham. And Mordecai Ham, holding a revival in North Carolina, led Billy Graham to Christ. And the man who started it all was a layman, Edward Kimball, who took seriously Christ's commission to be a witness in his world."

"Keep on sowing your seed," says the Word of God, "for you never know which will grow—perhaps it all will.”2

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, please help me to so live that my life always will be a shining light that will attract and draw others to You. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully in Jesus's name, amen."

1. Jesus (Matthew 5:16).
2. King Solomon (Ecclesiastes 11:6, TLB).
