Let’s celebrate Jesus. Let’s give Him Praise, let’s give Him Worship, let’s give Him all Adorations. He is the King of Kings, He is the Lord of Lords, the Ancient of Days, the I am that I am, the Rose of Sharon, Abba Father. The One who journeyed and was with us in January; He showed us His Faithfulness in February; March we are Victorious and now we are advancing to the Month of April – our Season to Shine.
Let’s appreciate Him, let’s Glorify Him by singing this song:
Glory be to God in the Highest Amen (2ce).

Father we thank you for another opportunity that you have given unto us to share your Words. Thank you because we know that our Words has come to us this evening with All Power.
Father, we pray that by the end of today we shall indeed Shine. And at the end of the day, take all the Glory, take all the Honour and Adorations.
For in Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed – Amen.
If you know that this is your Season to Shine, I want you to tap your neighbour and tell him or her that: “I am Born to Shine”.
If he/she is not responding, turn to another person/neighbour saying: “I am Born to Shine”.
Brethren, this evening; I will first of all want to appreciate God in the life of my father and my mother – Pastor and Pastor (Mrs) E.A Adeboye for being great Mentors and Coach to all children of the Redeemed Christian Church of God.
And most importantly, I will want to thank God – the Author and Finisher of my Faith for the opportunity He has given to me to Minister unto His people.
I will also like to thank our fathers and mothers specially for the renovation ongoing in the Children and Teens Church. I will also like to thank those who has been supporting our father and mother for this great task. And I pray that even as you key into that great assignment, the Lord will meet you at your point of needs in Jesus Name.
Brethren, this evening, I will like to share the Words briefly with us on the topic: “BORN TO SHINE”.
BIBLE TEXT: MATTHEW 5:14
Ye are the Light of the world. A City that is set on an Hill cannot be hid.
Brethren, the topic: “Born to Shine” can be divided into two (2) Key words – BORN and SHINE.
Now, what then does it means to be Born?
Brethren, to be born means to be given birth to or to be brought into life.
The Bible in Isaiah 64:8 described God as the Potter and we as the clay.
And brethren, the Potter does not waste his energy to make an ornament that does not serve its Purpose.
As a matter of fact, before the Potter made any ornament, he already has in mind the problem(s) and the solution(s) that the ornament is supposed to bring.
Brethren, the Bible recorded in Matthew 1:21 the Prophesy of Jesus Christ. It said that: “It shall bring forth a son and His Name shall be called Jesus: For He shall save His people from their sins.
That Bible text was indeed explaining exactly what Jesus Christ was coming here to do in the world.
So that further emphasis my fact that for you to be born; there is a Purpose for you on Earth.
What then brethren does it means to Shine?
To Shine means to radiate or reflect a Light.
And some people may like to say that Darkness is the opposite of Light.
But brethren, I will like to tell you that Darkness is not the opposite of Light. For Light is the Solution to Darkness.
The only reason why there is the Presence of Darkness is because there is the absence of Light.
What makes me so sure about this point is that the Bible says in John 1:5 that: “And the Light Shineth in darkness and the darkness comprehended it not”.
… Once Light Shines, Darkness has to leave.
For anyone who is going through any trials, going through any challenges whatsoever; as long as you begin to Shine the Light of God; I pray for you tonight that Darkness will run away in Jesus Name – Amen!
So when we say that we are “Born to Shine”; it means that the Sole Purpose of our existence is to provide Solutions to Problems.
… That problem is Darkness and the Solution is Light.
The Bible says in Matthew 5:16 – “Let your Light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and Glorify your Father which is in Heaven.
Brethren, your Sole Purpose in Life is to Shine the Light of God.
And the only way to Shine that Light is to be ” Born Again “.
The Light of God only existed in the Kingdom of God and the only way for you to enter the Kingdom of God is to be “Born Again”.
So I will employ you that when our father in the Lord comes up and make the Altar Call; please if you want to Shine that Light then you have to give your Life to Christ. Come and join those in the Kingdom of Light and you shall Shine that Light in Jesus Name – Amen!
Brethren, the first point of call when you need to Shine that Light is SPIRITUALLY.
To Shine God’s Light Spiritually, means to Preach the Gospel, Heal the Sick and Raise the Dead.
The Bible in Marks 16:15 says: “Go ye into the world and preach the Gospel to every creature”.
Further down to Verse 17 also says that: “And these signs shall follow them that believe. In my Name they shall cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues.
Brethren, another way for you to Shine God’s Light is to “Shine in Academics”.
For students in Secondary Schools and Tertiary Institutions; for those studying in any Capacity; you have to Shine God’s Light in your Academics.
The Bible in Daniel 1:20 says that: “And in all matters of wisdom and understanding, that the King enquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realm.
I pray for anyone who is failing in any course, who is failing in examination that you will receive the Light of God and Shine. And you shall have Success in Jesus Name – Amen!
Brethren, we also have to Shine God’s Light in our Business.
The Bible says in Genesis 39:3; describing the story of Joseph. It says that: “And his Master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord made all that he did to prosper in his hands”.
Brethren, if you have the Light of God in you, in your Career and in your Business; you shall Shine that Light and you shall Excel.
The Bible says in Proverbs 22:29 that: “Seest thou a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before Kings; he shall not stand before mean men.
Brethren, what about the man who Shine the Light?
“Seest thou a man who Shine the Light; he shall not just stand before Kings, he shall be a King.
It is time for the children of the Light to begin to Shine in their Business. It is time for children of the Light to begin to Shine in their Economy. It is time for the children of Light to begin to Shine God’s Light in Politics and in all areas of Life.
… And as you do so – as you Shine that Light; Success shall be yours in Jesus Name – Amen!
Brethren, how then can we maintain that Light?
The only way that you can maintain that Light is by:
1. Being Prayerful.
2. Living a Life of Complete Holiness
Show me a man who is Shinning God’s Light in his Academics, Business, Spiritually and I will show you a man that is addicted to Prayers.
Show me a man who is Shinning God’s Light in every area of his life and I will show you a man of “Total Holiness”.
Proverbs 4: 18 says: “But the path of the Just is as the Shinning Light that Shineth more and more unto the Perfect Day”.
Sin is like an enemy to your life. If you continue to wallow in sin; your Light will be cut off.
Is there anyone here who is ready to Shine that Light?
Can you wave your hands to Jesus Christ!
Declare tonight that you will Shine the Light of God!!!
Father in Jesus Name, we want to thank you because we have heard your Words and we know tonight that we want to Shine your Light.
Father, the Grace for us to continue to Shine the Light brighter and brighter even unto the Perfect Day I pray that you with grant unto us in Jesus Name.
Father Lord we know that the Night is not yet over and you are set to do Great and Mighty Things.
And we know that when your son comes up tonight indeed that our Testimonies shall be Full.
Thank you Lord for answered Prayers.
For in Jesus Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen.
Let somebody shout Hallelujah – HALLELUJAH!!!
Thank you so much for staying all through to read.

It is outrightly wrong and a sin for anyone that wants to swim in God’s Glory to consciously remove the original source of the work that does not emanate for him or her!
