Be A God Reflector

I wrote this one about a sermon that I heard where the pastor used a bicycle reflector to demonstrate how we are like that reflector and, though we can produce no light of our own, we can shine very brightly if we stay clean and allow God’s light to reflect off of us to guide others to Him. It struck me very strongly and the image stayed with me for a long time. As it says in Matthew: Let your light so shine before men that they see your good works and glorify your Father, which is in Heaven.

bible god quotes 158 Let your light so shine before men

Be a God Reflector

It’s said we are the hands & feet
Of Jesus while on earth.
Our actions show the evidence
Of spiritual rebirth.
The world can only see in us
Reflections of His light.
So we must always strive to keep
That image pure & bright.
Do you reflect God’s Holy light
Of love to everyone?
Do you seek ways to share His gift:
His one and only Son?
When people look at us we want
For them to just see Him.
When we reflect God’s love to all
The light will not grow dim.

Feel free to print, share or repost anything on this blog. I do ask that you let me know if you use one of my poems on your blog or at your church somehow. It might give me an idea of better ways to spread His words, which I am always looking to do. And of course, always keep the copyright symbol and my name with the poem so I continue to have the right to use them. You may not realize that if something is posted enough times without the copyright notice, I could lose the copyright and then someone else could conceivably file for a copyright and I would no longer be able to use my own poems! It has happened, so please make sure the (c) is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!

God bless,
Denise McKenney
