Light Of The World

When the power goes out in my apartment I always make sure I have a flash available so I can see and not be a stumbling mess that runs into everything I come across. That gives me that comfort and assurance that I can still get around and do what needs to get done. That flash is my in the darkness. And in the Bible Jesus said that we are to be the .

Matthew 5:14-16 NIV

You are the of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your shine before others, that they would see your good deeds and glorify your Father in Heaven.

In Genesis when God created the sun, moon and stars, He created them to be “s in the sky to the world.” Genesis 1:17 NLT He made them to be s in the darkness. And like our shining examples in the sky, and that flash I use when my power goes out, we too are supposed to be s.

We are the of the world. What a calling! Not to be scared and hidden but to be bold in our actions and be the example. The standard isn’t how loud, boisterous or noticeable you are, but what you do and the motivation behind it.

Do I want to be known as the most selfish person people know? Or do I want to be that person known for my good deeds. Not only good deeds done with selfish motivation but for the glory of my Father in Heaven.
