"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden." NIV
"Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid." KJV
As Christians, we know we have the light of the Gospel within us. Do we also remember that we are to live our lives so the whole world can see the truth of God in us? If we hid our light it may suffocate or cease to glow. It will certainly not be productive in this world. If we show our light, living and speaking the Word, those in the darkness will see and respond to the light. More importantly, our God will be glorified.
Heavenly Father, so many times we keep our light to ourselves to we can enjoy the blessings of communion with you. Help us, Lord, to understand that we have the light only by your grace and your plan is for us is to let that light shine so that others can know you too. In Jesus' name, Amen.
