How Brilliant Are You?

How you respond will be based on how you interpret the question. There are several interpretations, with the one most common or important to you being your primary interpretation. I am not asking about your intelligence. I’m asking you to perform an honest assessment on how brightly you shine in this world.

If you have been on the website or met me personally, you have definitely heard that the mission of Authentic Existence® is to spread the Word of God through simple, unique products and testimonies to encourage all to boldly reflect the light of the "Son", Jesus Christ, in their own way. Your interpretation of the mission may vary based on who you are. As I continue to execute the mission, God is revealing an even deeper meaning of it to me!

Let’s focus on this part: boldly reflect the light of the “Son”, Jesus Christ.

To do anything boldly, you have to be confident and courageous. I shared with you my path to this in Fearless when I finally realized God is always with me, so I can do what He tells me I can do.

To reflect the light of the “Son”, Jesus Christ, you have to know Jesus!

  • Jesus is the light of the world! “Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.” (‭‭John‬ ‭8:12‬ ‭NLT‬‬)
  • Jesus, the Son, is the way to God, the Father! “Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.” ‭‭(John‬ ‭14:6‬ ‭NLT‬‬)
  • Jesus died so that we may be saved! “If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved.” (Romans‬ ‭10:9-10‬ ‭NLT‬‬)
  • “Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see— such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him. He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together.”
    ‭‭(Colossians‬ ‭1:15-17‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

What God has encouraged me to share is to boldly reflect the light of His Son, you have to BELIEVE WHO HE SAYS YOU ARE!

There are so many distractions that lead to insecurities that tell you what you aren’t and therefore what you can’t do, if you allow them. The amount of energy you give to those things will diminish your ability to believe and reflect what God says about you.

Will God, who has already given you the victory through Jesus Christ, be your energy source? “But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians‬ ‭15:57‬ ‭NLT‬‬) 

Will you use all that power that He gave you to ask for anything in the name of Jesus? “You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name.”‭‭ (John‬ ‭15:16‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

After God’s creation of everything, we can apply what the Law of Conservation of Energy states: energy is neither created nor destroyed; it can only be transferred. What energy will you transfer? How you respond will determine how brilliant you are! If you look to God alone as your source for everything and believe only what He says about you, you will shine brightly and boldly reflect the light of the “Son”, Jesus Christ!!! Be blessed!
