Shining the light of Jesus

Last weekend my family and I were
driving through town, looking at the
"sights" of Port Aransas in the summer.
As we were driving, we came upon a
traffic accident that our first responders
had under control. The problem was
that too many people were "rubber-
necking" -- you know - slowing down
and looking while driving, to see what
had happened. As I was driving past,
it occurred to me that "rubber-necking"
has been around for a long time.
Jesus told the story (in Luke 10:30-
37) of some "rubber-neckers" who
didn't bother to stop to see if everyone
was OK. You're familiar with the
Good Samaritan story. The modern
day equivalent of the story would go
something like this:
"A local resident had a bad accident
that left him helpless on the side of the
road. First, the Baptist pastor told the
victim that he was praying for him as
he drove by. Next, a deacon from one
of the local churches continued past the
victim and looked the other way. Fi-
nally, a member of the local A A chapter
sees the accident, stops and takes the
accident victim to the clinic and pays
for the bill himself."
All joking aside, believers in Jesus
are to be Christ-like examples to those
around us. God wants to use us in
every situation that comes up. At First
Baptist Church of Port Aransas, we
are going through the greatest sermon
ever preached, Jesus' sermon on the
Mount. Jesus opened this sermon with
the beatitudes. They are eight areas of
our lives in which we must admit our
need for God, accept responsibility
for sin, submit control of our life to

God, make God's
will the priority,
forgive those who
have hurt us, ad-
dress our selfish
in the right rela-
tionships, and be
willing to stand
up for our faith.
Jesus then boils it down (Mat 5:14-16
NLT) "You are the light of the world
- like a city on a hilltop that cannot be
hidden. No one lights a lamp and then
puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp
is placed on a stand, where it gives light
to everyone in the house. In the same
way, let your good deeds shine out for
all to see, so that everyone will praise
your heavenly Father.
Our job and privilege is to shine so
that others can see who Jesus really is.
We are to shine at work, at the beach,
at home or while coming across a car
accident. The Christian contemporary
band, "Newsboys" wrote a song called
"Shine". They expressed the same
sentiment like this:
And try as you may there is no way
to explain the kinda change that would
make an Eskimo renounce fur, that
would make a vegetarian barbecue
hamster unless you can trace this
about-face to a certain sign. Shine,
make 'em wonder whatcha got,
make 'em wish that they were not
on the outside looking bored;
shine, let it shine, before all men,
let em see good works and then
let em glorify the lord
So, the question you need to ask
yourself if you are a believer in Jesus
is, "What areas am I not shining Jesus'
light for the world to see?"
