Matthew 5:16

English Translation

Today’s study is on Matthew 5:16

“In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”

The Bible tells us that doing good works doesn’t save us, but it tells us that God wants us to do good things. Those good works aren’t supposed to be done so that people think that we’re so holy, perfect, or awesome. Instead, good works are to be done so that people look at those of us who are following God and then glorify God themselves. I love the idea of it being a light that you are shining. Think about if you are in the dark and you turn on a small light. Everyone will look over to the light. What will they see when they look at the light? They will see God and all that He is. They will see that He is good, that He is loving, that He wants to help and they will want to follow Him, too. Then they will turn and ask me how they can know Jesus. Because I have Jesus inside of me, I will be able to tell them. Then they will go out and do good works. They won’t do this so they look great or to save themselves, but will do so in order that everyone will look at them and glorify God because He has changed them.

Let’s pray. Lord, thank You that we can do good works to glorify You. Help us to show others who You really are. Thank You for being good, for loving us, and for helping us. Help us to be more like You. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
