Shine…ALight – 2/3 words; many different meanings, one call.
ShineALight is a call and a movement to empower Christians to live a life of purpose and to use their natural gifts and talents in creative and imaginative ways; glorifying God and being lights in this world as commanded by Matthew 5:16.
Shine & ALight: We are called to shine; not only to shine but to shine alight- from within in a bright almost blinding manner. We are to be set alight by God and consequently shine that light in the nations.
The idea is also to showcase our gifts and talents to the world so that through them all can come to know the One who gives these gifts (Matthew 5:16).
This is not only for the traditional ‘ministry’ but for everyone – for the comedian, the teacher, the artist, the painter… whatever we do let us do it to the best of our abilities – like Daniel; showing forth that excellent spirit that can only point and direct to one person and one person alone; our heavenly Father.
In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16 (NIV)
