"You are the light of the world--like a city on a mountain, glowing in the night for all to see. Don't hide your light under a basket! Instead, put it on a stand and let it shine for all." Matthew 5:14-15
What a powerful verse! Jesus said that we are the light of the world. Notice he didn't say we should be or we can be or that someday we might be. We are the light of the world.
If you're like me, some days you don't really feel like being the light of the world. Some days I would rather just turn my light off, take out the batteries and let someone else do the honors. This light stuff is pretty intense, though. We can't just decide when and where we want to be a light. This is a full time job. More than that--I guess it's really a calling. Once we receive His gift of salvation we are the light of the world.
Someone once said, "There is no plan B!" It's up to us to be the light that points the rest of the world to Jesus.
What a responsibility. What a calling. What a privilege. What an honor. What a Savior!
