“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.” Matthew 5:14Text — Matthew 5: 14- 16
Light is very important to life. In fact, it was the first item God spoke into existence when He created the heaven and the earth. Light helps people see things clearly, and avoid accidents. Just as light reveals the beauty of things around us, it also exposes evil that should be avoided. The various commonly known sources of light include the sun, fire and electricity. The fireflies too produce light. They seem to be the only animals that naturally produce and shine light on their own. As little as the firefly is, it is still very attractive to all in the twilight.
Jesus says that His friends are “the light of the world”. Just like the firefly, we will shine the light of godly character in this world of ungodliness. We are to be the light of God to this dark world. How? We are to let our behaviour and preaching point the way to God, to warn them of the dangers ahead, and show them the love of God. Live a holy life everyday. Let your light shine.
1 John 1:5-7
