“God created you with a purpose and capacity to impact the world more than you imagine. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, your words and actions can shine near and far in such a way that lost and hurting people will be transformed by the grace of Jesus Christ. Using the biblical theme of light, Born to Shine provides more than inspiration and examples of faithful living. It presents practical guidance on how Christ's followers can shine more brightly for the good of the world and for God’s glory. You are the light of the world. God invites you to reclaim that identity with intentionality, urgency, and excellence.”
