Are You A Light to this World?

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Matthew 5:14

Jesus has called us to be The Light of The World, so do others see you as a light or a dark cloud? So what does it mean to be The Light? When you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior (Romans 10:9), you are given eternal life which has defeated death and sin (John 3:16). Jesus said whoever follows him will never walk in darkness again (John 8:12)

However, as Jesus goes on to say does someone light a lamp and hide it under a basket? (Matthew 5:15) No when you understand and receive Gods grace through Jesus, you need to share it to the world. (Matthew 28:19) The world is hopeless and in need of a Savior, that Savior is Jesus Christ (Luke 2:11), when you “open the eyes of the blind”(Isaiah 42:7) to Jesus, you shine The Light on them

The next part of the scripture says, a town built on a hill cannot be hidden, meaning when you become a Christian you are going to stand out. (1 Peter 2:9) When you accept the Holy Spirit you become transformed and your mind is renewed, no longer do you conform to the sins and evil of this world (Romans 12:2) And Jesus told us the world will probably hate us because of him (Matthew 10:22)

But Jesus is the Resurrection (John 11:25), The Living Water (John 4:14), The Bread of Life (John 6:35), that gives hope and victory to all of us because he has defeated death and hell. (Revelation 1:18) Let your light Shine to this world in Jesus Name Amen

  1. The True Light!

    Well written. I believe that in order to be saved, one must be baptized into the body of Christ. There are many scriptures which say this, and the context of buried with the old and raised with the new is very bible based…

        I’m so glad to hear that! I wasn’t looking for any more than to clarify my viewpoint with the comment. Thank you for understanding…
