In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16
We need Jesus' light within us in order to shine. Our hearts should be open to the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

"Christ has made provision that His church shall be a transformed body, illumined with the light of heaven, possessing the glory of Immanuel. It is His purpose that every Christian shall be surrounded with a spiritual atmosphere of light and peace. There is no limit to the usefulness of the one who, putting self aside, makes room for the working of the Holy Spirit upon his heart and lives a life wholly consecrated to God."
- Ellen G. White (Counsels for the Church, p. 99) 

"Christ does not bid His followers strive to shine. He says, Let your light shine. If you have received the grace of God, the light is in you. Remove the obstructions, and the Lord's glory will be revealed. The light will shine forth to penetrate and dispel the darkness. You cannot help shining within the range of your influence."
- Ellen G. White (Christ's Object Lessons, p. 420)  

1. How do we receive the grace of God so that His light will be in us?
  • Surrender to God.
  • Die to self daily.
  • Pray for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
  • Study the Word of God.
  • Acknowledge that our light comes from Jesus.
As White says, we don't have to strive. If we are spending time with Jesus, His light will flow freely and naturally through us. It will evidently show we love and serve Him.
