Light Of The World

Matthew 5:14-15

You are the light of the world.
A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.
Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl.
Instead they put it on its stand,
and it gives light to everyone in the house.

Jesus is the great light of the world (John 8:12).

Those who believe in Him are brought out of darkness into His light (Colossians1:12-13). They in turn become lights also.


What does light do?

It exposes dirt. It lights up the way so that we do not stumble. It discourages works of darkness. It dispels fear. It enables discernment to be made. It enables work to be done.


What does the light of the gospel do?

It blesses in many different ways.

Christians who walk in it can in turn help others by sharing the knowledge they have concerning life, death, sin, salvation, God, the devil, heaven and hell.

These are important issues that have plagued man on a wide scale. And many are striving to find adequate answers.

The light will then be recognized, not just in words, but also in good deeds, which lead others to praise our Father in heaven.

Let us be determined to shine for Jesus — the true light of the world!

Oh Lord,
I want my life to count for You and Your kingdom.
Help me be a lighthouse for You.
