2. Light of the world
It’s important to understand that Jesus does not say that you “should be” the light of the world. He says “you ARE.”
John 8:12 Jesus said I am the light of the world, if you walk in me, even though you are in darkness, you will live.
Ephesians 5:8 you were all at one time darkness but now you are light in the Lord. So live like children of light.
A disciple of Jesus finds their identity in Christ alone. If Jesus is the light, and we are in the light...we live like Jesus.
YOU ARE LIGHT…meaning we have Christ but we also have a purpose. And the role of light is to drown out the darkness.
We must live into John 1:5 that the light will always shine in the darkness and the darkness will never win! When Jesus said, don’t hide it under a bushel…The question that would be raise would be…why would you? Why would anyone desire to hide a lamp under a basket? It defeats the purpose of the light and it is a waste!
Actions matter. Words matter. 1 Peter 3:25 says that because Christ is Lord over our lives, we should always be prepared to give an answer for the hope that we have.
Our words are only able to be shared if our actions set the stage for them. And our actions are what will point people to an incredible God.
1. Do you live like a light in the world?
2. Do you know Jesus as the light, drowning out the darkness in your own life? Romans 10:9
YOU ARE AN AGENT OF REDEMPTION IN THIS WORLD. LIVE INTO IT. SALT AND LIGHT
