Here you are referencing two different things. Your light and the Crown of Life are not the same. The Crown of Life is given when "...faithful unto death" (Revelation 2:10) Your light is what people see, not the Crown; the peace, the works, being in the world, but not OF the world, that is the light because the world is what everyone sees, but being different, that's what stands out. You can't light a candle in a dark room and it not be seen.

> You see, when you do a good work, all those that see it, are seeing the glorified God. They see Him in you. They see the Crown of Life.

You are not saved by your works, you are JUDGED and/or known (what people see) by your works according to God's Word. You are saved through and by being born of the water and of the Spirit. What about the ones that know nothing about God, what do people see then? There are many good people in the world with good works, and when people see those works, they aren't seeing God, they are seeing good works, because they haven't been born again. How are they seeing a crown that they aren't even striving to obtain? You receive your Crown when you've fought the fight and won the race.
