The only way to shine is to stay plugged in by the source, Jesus Christ. When you stay connected with the source He will feed you and sustain you in every way you can think possible.
He’s the light of the world. He is the Source and Life we seek. Light illuminates darkness. With Jesus in you, He illuminates darkness.
Jesus said we should remain in Him and be connected into the vine for without Him we cannot bear any fruit. Jesus even says without Him we can do nothing. (John 15) That’s the real problem we try to do things without Him. Then His grace comes and bless the mess we caused. Stay in the light as He is in the light.
“but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.”
1 John 1:7 NASB1995
Stay close to the Light (Jesus).
Stay inside of the Light (Jesus).
Stay a carrier of the Light (Jesus).
John 8: 12 - “... I am the Light of the world...”
