Matthew 5:14-15 ” You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to every one in the house.”
The Scene: The sun brightly shining–a symbol of what God’s children, true believers in Him, must be like in a darkened world. We are to shine like the sun and stand out in a fallen world as God’s example of holy living.
1 Peter 2:9” But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praise of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”
So we are to walk as light, as Jesus Christ our Lord is light.
Proverbs 4:18 “The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.”
Christians can and do make a difference in a darkened world. As this world continues to get darker, the world will look to the light for help and to bring mankind into repentance and salvation.
We have been commanded by our heavenly Commander-In-Chief to “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.” Mark 16:15
