We Are Lights

“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden."
Matthew 5:14 NKJV

The Bible says that light is that which makes manifests;"But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light." (Ephesians 5:13 NKJV). If you want to see the color, the quality, or the identity of a thing, you need light. Colors are only as beautiful as the light that shines on them.

Light exposes everything hidden by darkness. Without light, there can't be joy. Without light there is no life to talk about. Light is so important that God had to call light first in His seven declarations of creation. Without light, there can be no life.

The Lord Jesus came to make us lights. This is a high calling of God in Christ. We have a divine mandate to manifest the virtues and excellences of God. For many people God is a mystery but thank God He has chosen us to manifest Him to the world. Because light makes manifest.

When we are present in an environment,  we set the standard for everyone to see. The standard of love, joy, peace, patience and faithfulness. We become the expression of deathlessness, fearlessness,  agelessness  and incorruptibleness. We should let our light so shine before men that they may see our good works and glorify our Father in heaven. Become an example of generosity in your community.  The nature of God shines through you. Light up your world in Jesus' name. Amen.

I am the light of the world, a city set upon a hill that can not be hidden. I am the expression of deathlessness, agelessness, incorruptibleness, and fearlessness.
