Light of the world

In the Sermon on the Mount Jesus tells his followers, “You are the light of the world. A city set upon a hill can not be hid.” In this statement, Jesus is attempting to let his disciples know that they were created to shine his light out to the world. Just like a city that rests on top of a hill can not be missed by all who pass by, Christians too can not live in a way that is hidden from the world. Their actions and words are seen and scrutinized by the world.

As a light of the world it is imperative that we let out light shine so that the world may know Christ. We are the example that the world sees. With out us the world would be lost.

Are you shining your light to the world?
