You 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.”  — Jesus, Matthew 5:14-16 NIV Accessed from Bible Gateway

Jesus said “you are the light of the world.”  Yes, the light of God shines through you.  For too long we have focused on the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus and ignored the life in between.  By doing so we have missed the lessons Jesus came to teach us about how to live on this earth.  Don’t hide your light.  Let it shine!

I would like to wrap up our study of the life and teachings of Jesus with a final thought.

Christmas has come and gone. But this year don’t take the baby out of the manger and put him away till next year. Celebrate Christmas every minute of every day. Welcome the Christ presence into the world by living in conscious awareness of the presence of God within us all and following Jesus our great example by living his way of life and teachings.

Dig a Little Deeper: 

What does following Jesus look like in your life? Is your life the reflection of the Christ of God Jesus portrayed in the Scriptures, or do you simply follow the man, Jesus, while controlling your own life?

Be the silent watcher

“Be the silent watcher of your thoughts and behaviour. You are beneath the thinker. You are the stillness beneath the mental noise. You are the love and joy beneath the pain.” — Eckhart Tolle

 

 

The Only Way to Counteract Chaos

“When everything is moving and shifting, the only way to counteract chaos is stillness.

When things feel extraordinary, strive for ordinary.

When the surface is wavy, dive deeper for quieter waters.”

When we are still…

“When we are still, 
all settles into place. 
We take time to see the beauty.
We take time to see the heart.
And we naturally gravitate to others that resonate that inner calm. 
When we are still.”
