We are the Light of the World

14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”  — Matthew 5:14-16 The Bible, New International Version 

The term “light of the world” is often associated with Jesus, especially during the Advent/Christmas season.  But in the above scripture passage from what is known as the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus tells us that WE are the light of the world.  In these turbulent times it can be difficult and even frightening to let our light shine.  But shine we must.  We must live the truth, even though those who are still blind to it may ridicule or even threaten us.

I am the light of the world.  YOU are the light of the world.  WE are the light of the world.  Now go forth and shine!
