Matthew 5:14-16 - “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”
You are the light of the world!
1. What Is Our Source Of Light?
The Light of God – Jesus!
John 8:12 - Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
Psalm 34:5 - Those who look to him are radiant…
2. What Does Jesus Warn Us Not To Do With Our Light?
Two ways to hide your light:
• Inconsistent living
Philippians 2:15 - Do everything without complaining and arguing, so that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people.
• Indifference towards lost people
3. How Are We Called To Shine Our Lights?
Mark 5:16 - In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
1. Let your light shine on strategic places and people.
Where is God calling you to shine your light?
2. Let your light shine so people can see Jesus at work in your life.
3. Let your light shine to magnify and reflect God’s glory.
2 Corinthians 3:18 - And all of us have had that veil removed so that we can be mirrors that brightly reflect the glory of the Lord. And as the Spirit of the Lord works within us, we become more and more like him and reflect his glory even more.
