“In the same way, let your light shine before men, that see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” Matt. 5:14-16
Jesus shared these words with those around him, long ago and in a place far away. And yet these words still speak to us loudly in the place where we are. Thanks to our church ancestors, Cedar Hill Church stands today, still giving praise to our Father, God. Sixty years ago, those men and women brought light to shine in Cedar Rapids. We would not be able to move forward without that guiding light.
The faith that we see being shared today reminds me that the light is still shining and is still leading us to share our savior, Jesus. This is the faith that today we carry forward to the next generation. We need to make sure the future of our church continues to be a light shining in Cedar Hills, and throughout the corridor.
This reminds me of the song that I learned long ago in Sunday School….”This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine……All around the neighborhood, I’m going to let it shine…..Let it shine ’till Jesus comes….Let it shine….Let it shine…..”
Are you singing with me? Praise the Lord!
Dear Heavenly Father,
Help me to let my light shine so those around me can see Your love for us. Thank You for the witness of Cedar Hills Church. Help us to pass on the good news of You and Your great love and care for us. Amen.
