“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid” (Matthew 5: 14).Text — 2 Kings 5:1-10
Many Christians hide their identities in their schools and neighbourhood. Though saved and professing to be righteous they are timid and afraid of being ridiculed by their friends for Christ’s sake. Such youths are ignorant because they don’t realize that the preaching of the gospel is the power of God unto salvation. Christ emphatically stated that those who deny Him before men shall also be denied before God’s holy angels. Besides, telling people about God’s power to save from sin and heal all manner of sicknesses will lead to the salvation and deliverance of many captives.
The young maid of Naaman’s wife in our text, let her light shine – she shared the testimony of God’s power resident in the prophet in the land of Israel. We are living witnesses to the manifestation of God’s wonderful power in various evangelistic crusades through His servants globally. The dead have been raised, the deaf and dumb healed and captives delivered. We will do well to share with others so that they can connect to Christ even through the social media outlets.

Your pastor is another Elisha, direct youths to him.
