Light of The World
When Jesus came to earth, He was the Light of the World and He conquered darkness forever. But even though Satan is defeated, he is still very much alive and active in our lives. Satan is the real enemy. Jesus did something a little crazy, though. Even before He was going to die, He passed the torch to us:
“You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.”
Matthew 5:14-16 NLT
Many of us grew up learning the song:
This little light of mine,
I’m gonna let it shine...
It’s time for the Church to shine. For the people of God to bring salt and light into every situation, every relationship, and every conversation. You don’t have to preach to bring the light of love and compassion, to listen and understand - you just have to love one another as Christ loves you. #justdoit #theywillknowusbyourlove #BEthechurch #youarethelightoftheworld #saltandlight #thislittlelightofmine #discipleship #shalom #onespiritonechurch #dailydevotional
