If You Got It Flaunt It
1 John 5:11-12: And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
If you got it, flaunt it may not be the most spiritual way to express it. If you have received Jesus into your heart, He is there, Light is there and Eternal Life is there, right now and always. We did not see Jesus in the flesh as the apostles did, but we have seen Him in the actions and attitudes of many Christians that have been in our lives.
1 John 1:1-5: That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; 2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) 3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. 4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full. 5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
John 9:5: As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
Matthew 5:14a: Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Are we letting our light shine before men or are we hiding it under a bushel?
