"You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on a the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven." Matt. 5:14-16
We have been entrusted with a responsibility. Jesus did not say we are to become the light, but we already are the light (our identity). Can we let it shine? This action is our task.
The challenge before us is how open will we be about Christ in conversing with others? How visible will we make Christ by our deeds? All of us need to examine our living and see how much this light is shining in our lives. After all, you and I are ambassadors for Christ.
I would encourage you to meditate upon these words of Scripture in preparation for Sunday worship. You might want to read the full text which is Matthew 5:13 - 20. May God's blessing being upon your time of study and being present in worship.
Discipleship Question for Reflection
Do you give enough evidence in your life so that others see the light of Christ in you?
