“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”
Matthew 5:14-16 NKJV
I remember as a teenager going out fishing late one night away from all city lights. I don’t remember if I caught any fish but the one thing I do remember is how dark it was.
It was absolutely pitch black! There was no light except the light that I had with me and without that light it was utter darkness. One of those, you can’t see your hand in front of your face deals!
This curse filled, sin filled world is a very dark place but thank God you and I, as believers, have been delivered from that darkness. Glory to God, thank You Jesus!
Jesus came into the world to be that light that shines brightly. Dispelling the darkness!
And now Jesus says we are the light of the world.
You are a difference maker because when you show up on the scene, things
change. Light dispelling all darkness.
We are to be like that city set high on the hill, which is always seen, never hidden. Be like that bright light shining on the lampstand for all to see.
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”
Father help us to be so bright, to so many people, that they would see our good works. You are the source of that light and as we stay connected to You, the power source, people will see the good works that we do and will glorify You, our Father.
