Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid (Matthew 5:14).
In John 8:12, Jesus said, “I am the light of the world.” Here in Matthew, Jesus says that you and I are to be lights, too! Our lights shine when we reflect the light of Christ.
It is not going to be easy to let your light shine in our dark world. Satan will scrutinize, criticize, and do everything he can to try to get your light to go out. Jesus observed: “men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil” (John 3:19). Some people will not appreciate your shining the light on them. Others, however, will be eternally grateful.
Be the city on a hill. Shine your light today and help someone see the Way (John 14:6).
