You Are the Light


Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
Matthew 5:16

When hikers are lost in a vast wilderness, completely turned around with no sense of direction, they look for one thing at night: light! If they can climb a tree or get to the top of a mountain, they look far into the distance to search for a glimpse of light any kind of light. Light means electricity; electricity means people; people means help; help means survival.

Our world today has become a vast, trackless wilderness enveloped in darkness. People are lost; people are wandering through life without a sense of direction and without hope of being found. It is no surprise how frequently the Bible uses “light†as a symbol for spiritual awakening and salvation. Jesus said He was “the light of the world†(John 8:12); and when He left earth, He designated His followers to be that light: “You are the light of the world†(Matthew 5:14). The purpose of the light is to draw mankind out of the wilderness to a place where they can be rescued and saved.

If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you are the light of the world! Let your life be a source of light—what Jesus called “your good works†—so the lost will be drawn to Christ in you.

The gospel is light but only the Spirit can give sight.

That's me in a nutshell. Love me or hate me.... that would be subject to your interpretation of the truth, and what is the truth??? Well, that's a loaded question.... go read the Bible.. if that's your thing
