Matthew 6- The Lamp of The Body

The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!  Matthew 6:22-23

When we think of healthiness, we often think of our physical bodies. Are we exercising or eating properly , ect. However there is more to being healthy than the physical body, it also includes your soul. Most people don’t think about their soul when they reflect upon their lives, that’s why many reject Christ. Many don’t understand they have a soul, so they don’t believe they are in trouble when their physical body dies. This is what Jesus means by “If your eye is bad, your whole body is full of darkness” Without the Holy Spirit you are not regenerated, you have no concept of spiritual discernment

Jesus said “Unless you are Born Again, you won’t see the Kingdom of Heaven” (John 3:3) Why? Because you’re dead in your sins (Ephesians 1) your full of darkness because you haven’t been regenerated or baptized by the Holy Spirit. You can’t possibly think you will go to Heaven in your wretched sinful state. You must be washed by the blood of Christ, be declared righteous before God through The Son and be regenerated by The Holy Spirit

Some will say we only have physical bodies and I’ll just go the ground when I die. Jesus said “ Fear the One who can destroy both the Body and Soul in Hell “ ( Matthew 10:28) Christ made it clear we have a Body and Soul, what are you doing to make your soul healthy? Jesus also said “Man can’t live on Bread Alone” (Matthew 4:4) You can’t just take care of your physical bodies, you also need to feed your soul with the Word of God.

No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Matthew 6:24

Nobody can serve two masters, who is your master? Is Jesus truly your Lord or Master? Or are the things of this world your master? What do you spend all your time doing? You are either a slave to sin or a slave to righteousness (Romans 6:18)  If you continue in your sinful habits, they will own you! This is why you need to become Born Again and Jesus will break the chains!

Jesus said “We are The Light of the world” we can only receive this light through Christ by the Holy Spirit. It’s time to get right with God, it’s time to have your light shine before others in Jesus name Amen!
