You are the light of the world

“His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them, saying: … ‘You are the light of the world.’” Matthew 5:1-2,14

Recently I read this quote “God is more interested in what I am, than in what I do.” Often we become so busy doing things for God we take for granted what God has done for us and forget who God says we are. Throughout the Bible, God tells us many times how He sees us. We are “His beloved children”, we are “Christ’s friends” and here we are told that we are light to the world.

While we are very comfortable with Jesus saying, “I am the light of the world” perhaps we are not so comfortable with Him saying to us that we are the light of the world. We don’t become light to the world by extra prayer, Bible study or by trying harder. We are light because Jesus lives in us and He is light. The more we allow Jesus to reign in our lives the more light will radiate from our lives.

So initially we may not feel up to being light to the world but as we grow in Christ we learn to see ourselves from His perspective and realize we are light to the world, not because we have worked hard to become light but because of what God has done in our lives.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
