Some people appear to stay in the spotlight actors, singers, politicians, and publicity hounds.  These are some of the most common.  But then there are others, those that seem to emit a light of their own.  You are drawn to them by some innate attribute that even you can’t identify.  It’s just something about them.

In Acts Chapter 4 the apostles Peter & John are brought before the chief priest and elders for healing a crippled beggar and preaching Jesus and the resurrection.  The leaders demand answers from these uneducated fishermen.  But what all of them failed to realize was that when you’ve been with Jesus a change takes place.

The bible says that, “When they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated, common men, they were astonished.  And they recognized that they had been with Jesus."

Well the 5,000 who had just heard the word and believed already knew that these men had been with Jesus.  It was something about them.  They didn’t speak like everyone else.  There was a quality to their character a concern in their voice that resonated in the spirits of the 5,000.

This is the light that shines from some people.  Drawing, calling, beckoning to others to come and when you feel the warmth of its glow you know that person has been with Jesus.  They can no longer go unrecognized.

Shine your light.
