The follower of Jesus Christ is an example of what Jesus Christ is like to those who do not know Him. The way we say and do things should convince unbelievers that to follow Christ is truly a life that has more meaning than one that is without Him. Our lives should and must reflect the Light of Jesus unto this world of darkness, so that those who are in the darkness will be attracted to the Light, like moths to the Holy Flame.
Is this true in your life? If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, is His Light shining in you? If it is not, it is time to examine the condition of your heart.
Many things can hinder the Light that believers are supposed to reflect. Those things include selfishness, pride, secret sins, fear, and anger. If such things are dwelling in your life, it is time you put them from your life.
Submit the things that mar Christ’s image in us before the feet of Jesus and ask Him to remove them from our lives. Reestablish your relationship with the Prince of Peace through prayer and meditation of His Word, and His Light will be renewed in us. This also will show to the world how great and powerful the Grace of Christ and make it even more appealing.

Meekness is the same term translated “gentle” in 1 Peter 3:4. Meekness is not weakness. Scripture indicates that both Moses and Christ were meek men; however, they were certainly not weak men.
Fear implies a high degree of reverence or respect.
As “born again” Christians, people should notice something different about us.
1. How we love others
2. How we are…
