"You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid."
Matthew 5:14 and Ephesians 5:8

Have you ever wondered what went through the minds of the disciples when Jesus called them "the light of the world?" They might have said to themselves, as we  might, "How can I be the light of the world? Only some great leader could  do that. I'm not qualified. My light's not bright enough."

But how much light does it take to push away the darkness? Only a little light from a candle in a pitch-black room, and the darkness is gone. Jesus is the true light, but as His followers we reflect His light. Our faithful walk of obedience is a . . .

Jesus is the true light, but as His followers we reflect His light. Our faithful walk of obedience is a beacon of God's love and truth. Our testimonies are beams of warm light piercing the cold darkness of this world, drawing unbelievers to Jesus, assuring them that Someone loves them and waits to welcome them home.

Christian friends, You can be a light in the dark places. God didn't call us all to be giant searchlights. You can give a quiet word of testimony backed up by a consistent life. I think of this text when I hear the commercial for "Super 8"  "We'll leave the light on for you."  also remember singing "This Little Light Of Mine" in Sunday School and VBS.  "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works." (v16).

You are called with a holy calling
The light of the world to be,
To lift up the lamp of the Savior
That others His light may see.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - To lead others out of the darkness of sin, let them see the light of Christ in your life.
