Shining in darkness is one thing but to shine in broad daylight is something else entirely. It is extraordinary. The only way to shine in broad daylight is to surrender life to Christ – the Bright and Morning Star. You cannot shine without Him because you have no light of your own. You must become a disciple of Jesus Christ if you want to shine like Him and to achieve this you must obey His word and continue in it (John 8:31-32).
You can only shine when you reflect the light of the Bright and Morning star. When the Bright and Morning Star takes over one’s life, many pleasant things begin to happen to that person. For example, Jesus the Bright and Morning Star deliberately came to this world poor, so that through His poverty, we might become rich, according to 2 Corinthians 8:9 which says:
For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.
Flourishing when the economy of nations and the world in general is struggling is an example of shining as the Bright and Morning Star. Being perfectly whole in the midst of a pandemic is another great example since you have already been healed by the stripes of the Bright and Morning Star (1 Peter 2:24).
One of the fastest ways of shining like the Bright and Morning Star is to continue to do what He came to do, what He has also commissioned us His followers, to do: soul-winning. Our memory verse says that we His followers shall be wise and shine like the sun; that when we win souls, we shall shine like the stars. Proverbs 11:30 tells us that those who win souls are wise. To shine like the Bright and Morning Star, we must therefore be wise – we must win souls.
It is an open secret that I began to shine the moment I made up my mind to win souls into the Kingdom of God. You also can become a star today. Accept Jesus as your Lord, begin to win souls for Him and you will shine forever.

Open Heaven 12 March 2022 Saturday Hymn
HYMN: MY HOPE IS BUILT ON NOTHING LESS
1. My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus name.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.
2. When darkness seems to veil His face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.
3. His oath, His covenant, and blood,
Support me in the whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.
4. When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh, may I then in Him be found;
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.
