Let Your Light Shine

Sometimes doing good just isn’t enough.  We need to do more than that.

#lovethemuntiltheyaskwhy

In this message, Phil shares principles from the powerful “call to action” from Paul in Ephesians 2:10.

“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.”

And then Phil unpacks the “call to action” from Jesus himself, from Matthew 5:16.

“Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.”
