The Hebrew word ‘owr means to be or become light, shine. This piece is connected to Isaiah 60:1-3:

 

Arise, shine
For your light has come!
And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you.
For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
And deep darkness the people;
But the LORD will arise over you,
And His glory will be seen upon you.
The Gentiles shall come to your light,
And kings to the brightness of your rising.

Shine speaks about the wonderful blessing and responsibility the Body of Christ has to shine His light of love and righteousness in a world that is growing dark. “Shine!” is His loving command to all who are His Bride. Just as God first uttered in Genesis 1:3, “Let there be light…”, He is commanding us to shine forth His light into a world that is becoming without form, void, and dark (Genesis 1:2). Yet behind this command, is also a call to be bold.  Being set-apart—or holy—requires that we find our identity in Christ and not fear standing out for His sake.  “Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go” (Joshua 1:6).
