How far does your light shine?

“[Jesus said] In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:16 English Standard Version

The Yaquina Head lighthouse is the tallest lighthouse on the Oregon coast at 93 feet. Built at the end of Yaquina Head, the lighthouse is 162 feet above the Pacific Ocean. That height allows her light to shine nineteen miles from shore.
Your light shines farther than you think. Because of Christ’s death and resurrection, you are his light in the world. And your light shines. This is not a plea to let your light shine, because it does. The question is how far does your light shine?
Only God  knows the answer to that question. However, I believe there are people whom you don’t know who’ve been touched by the light of Christ shining through you.
The light that shines far out into the darkness also has its own signature.A lighthouse is identified by its signature beacon. The Yaquina Head lighthouse signature beacon is two seconds off, two seconds on followed by fourteen seconds off. Sailors know where they are when they recognize this signature.
You have a unique signature that shines God’s love into the darkness of the world. No one shines God’s light just like you, and it’s this light that helps lead people to the harbor of God’s love.
