Light of the world

Matthew 5:14 (KJV)  Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

I have had the privilege to meet with several people during one on one evangelism and I've discovered some of the following:

*Almost everyone with a Christian name claimed to be born again, some even believe they will go to heaven in the eventuality of death. But pressing further by engaging them with certain questions, I discovered that most of them don’t even know what it means to be born again.

* Many who have received the Lord Jesus are doing nothing for Him.

 I believe Jesus foresaw our day when he said in Matthew 9:37 that ‘‘the harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few’'.

From my experience, the grasp of darkness on its subjects seem firmer than ever. Yet, the saved seem unconcerned. We gather in large numbers in massive auditoriums but our immediate environments are not affected. This has left me with these questions: is there a kind of light that doesn’t shine? Can one be under a Lord and not serve him? Can a city be on a hill and yet be hidden?

Have you met with Jesus the light of the world? Do you have His life in you? Is He your Lord? Then, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven (Matthew 5:16).

The proof of light is in its shinning. The proof of Jesus’ lordship over you is that you will obey and serve Him. Jesus says in John 5:17 that ‘‘my Father worketh hitherto, and I work’’. If Jesus is your Lord, show it by doing His work.

Go into today determined to serve Jesus by letting His light shine through you. The harvest is truly plenteous!

Prayer: Lord, forgive me for any way I have hidden my light under a bushel. Please help me shine and bring glory to Your Holy Name from today. Amen.
