Because we are wholly loved by God, there is a warm light within us, and we have a choice every day whether to let it shine or to hide it. But being a light can feel risky sometimes (What will others think? Do I want to be different?). Our Shine From the Inside Collection can help provide reassurance for us and a challenge to others as we bring radiance that can be seen and felt in our communities.
Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. Psalm 34.5
For God, who said, "Light shall shine out of darkness," is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:6
You are the light of the world. A city situated on a hill cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket, but rather on a lampstand, and it gives light for all who are in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven. Matthew 5.14-16
