Today’s Truth: The Light of the World

You are the light of the world! We have heard Jesus referred to as the light of the world, but have you ever given serious thought that YOU are also the light of the world? Matthew 5:14-16 says, “ “You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.” If you have found salvation in Jesus Christ, then you are part of that light!

What a beautiful thought. This should be encouraging for a few reasons. First, you have the light living inside of you and it has lit up your entire life. This means you no longer need to walk in darkness. You always have the light of Christ within you- this is why he calls you the light of the world! If you always walk around with a flashlight, then you are always able to light up any room. Christ and his message is that light. The other reason this is encouraging is because it means you are able to witness to others. You can live as though you have the light to light up their darkness. Your light will never go out because it is connected to the Father.
