Living the Light

Posted on Posted in Covenant, Life, Responsibility


 

      Are you a living light,
      … or living under a basket?

We are quick to say that,
we are living in the light as He is in the light!
But is that really what God’s Word says or expects,
… or what Jesus wants us to do?

Of course we should be in the light,
… but what are we or should we be doing in the light?

      “You are the light of the world.
      A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.

      Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket,
      but on a lampstand,
      and it gives light to all who are in the house.
      Let your light so shine before men,
      that they may see your good works

      and glorify your Father in heaven.
      Matt 5:14-16

The Lord wants us to not just live in the light,
but He wants us to shine that light that is in us,
… so that others can see the way!
… so that others can see who Jesus is, in you!

Therefore the Lord said to us …

      But if we walk in the light as He is in the light,
      we have fellowship with one another,
and the
      blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
      John 1:7

What others see in you and in me,
… is the light that we live,
… is the light that we are!

      Let your light so shine before men,
      that they may see your good works
      and glorify your Father in heaven.

      Matt 5:16
