You Are the Light
May the Spirit of our Lord touch your day. The salvation story of Jesus Christ reaches around the world. Jesus said ” You are the light of the world.” (Matt 5:14) Almost every Christian knows this verse. The reason is this verse is so simple, but it has a deep meaning. Jesus tells us that Christians are called to be the light of this world. They are summoned from the darkness to shine their light and show their faith through their deeds. The purpose of living as a Christian is to glorify our Lord through each aspect of our life.
We are living in a time where it seems everything is going wrong. Our days may look dark and we may be tempted to think there is no hope. It is precisely at such times we need to remember that ”God’s Word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path”. (Psalm 119:105)
We can be confident God’s Word is leading our daily lives and can dispel our problems and challenges. We can be sure that Jesus Christ is there to help us and although we sinful humans may not always keep our word and promises, He always will. It is only by God’s grace we receive the light of the Lord. In our daily lives, are we showing our light to others? Can others see Christ through our lives today? If the answer to those questions are not solid, we need to spend time in prayer. Ask God to help you remember that the loving Lord can make us shine before others.
