Hey everybody! Today I’m going to talk about how we as Christians are called to be lights to the world. I’m going to base this post off of Matthew 5:14-16:
You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put is under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your light and glorify your Father in heaven.
God is the true light and if we let Him, He will shine through us to others.
How can we do this?
Let’s start by praying. Telling the Lord we are willing to be His light and asking Him to shine through us to others.
Just doing things like helping a neighbor mow their lawn, or praying with a struggling person can show the Lord’s light.
Why do we do this?
It says in verse sixteen of Matthew five: In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your light and glorify your Father in heaven.
So let’s remember that we are doing this so that they can see the Love and Light of our Father!
Thanks so much for taking the time to read!
