Matt Redman has written a book called ‘Mirror Ball’ in which he encourages readers to remember that, however inadequate they may feel, God will work in and through them, just as light radiates through the smallest prism. After all, the same God who said “let there be light” has made His light to shine in their hearts, illuminating their lives and the lives of those around them.

In the book, Matt Redman’s shares about the title of the book, regarding Louie Giglio’s idea to have a mirror ball come down from the ceiling during a part of the Passion Conference. This was held in a massive arena and when Matt Redman saw the small size of the mirror ball, he was worried that it was not going to make any kind of impact and was going to turn out to be the worst idea ever. However in the service when the time came, the ball dropped and bright beams of light hit the ball and the light radiated to all corners of the arena. It may have been small and seemed inadequate, but the result was anything but. Because of the love of God and Him living in us, we need to radiate His light through us by the lives that we live. We become the mirror ball for His light that shines upon us.

“When God shines upon His church, we become a dazzling testimony to His awesome radiance. You may feel ineffective. You might have lost confidence in your ability to shine. You may think you are too small or inconsequential to ever be of any value in the kingdom of God. But no matter at all – for, in the end, it is all a matter of light. His light. The life of worship never begins with you. It starts and ends with Jesus.” (Matt Redman, ‘Mirror Ball’)

Our light is just a reflection of God’s light. God is the Famous One, the important One, the One who must have the pre-eminence.
