And he said unto them, Is a candle brought to be put under a bushel, or under a bed? and not to be set on a candlestick? For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad. If any man have ears to hear, let him hear. Mark 4:21-23
Jesus said “We are the Light of the Word” (Matthew 5) “ A city on the hill can’t be hidden” (Matthew 5) Then why do we see few Christians out in the world letting their light shine in the darkness? Alot of Christians dont even want to go to Church anymore, they hide in their houses, sit on their couches, Jesus said “Is a candle to be put under a basket?” We the light of the world were not made to be hidden, we were made to spread the Light of Christ in this dark world
But you say “That Church is too corrupt” or “That place has too many bad people” Yes! The darker the place the better, the Light shines brighter in darker areas. Jesus said “There should be nothing hid, nothing kept secret” The gospel needs to be preached on the streets, from the rooftops, so everyone can hear! There should be no secret clubs or meetings about Christ, that is a cult
And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given. For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he hath. Mark 4:24-25
Jesus is saying there is no excuse for you not to preach the gospel, “Make disciples of all the nations “ (Matthew 28:19) If you know the gospel then preach the gospel ,a light can’t be hidden, a city on the hill can’t be unnoticed. You can’t help build Gods Kingdom if you don’t reach out to people, this is our service and duty as a Christian
Reminds me of the old Sunday School song “This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine” Are you letting your Light shine before others in this dark world? Now more than ever this dark world needs the light of Jesus Christ!
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Matthew 5:14
Can you be the Light of the World if your hidden under a basket? Of course not, then why are you being disobedient to The Lords commands? As the song said “Don’t let Satan blow it out” , don’t let Satan be a stumbling block to your calling, be the Light in Jesus name Amen!
