YOU ARE THE LIGHT THAT HELPS THE WORLD SEE
Jesus said in our text that He is the light of the world, and we see Him display this truth of Himself in the things He did while on earth (see Acts 10:38).
Jesus went on to make a striking statement in Matthew 5:14. He said: “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.” This means that like Jesus, as long as you are in this world, you are the light of the world and He has empowered you to likewise do goof everywhere you go like He did.
In order to truly appreciate the beauty of all this, you must understand one key characteristic of light. And that is found in John 1:5 which describes light as being greater than darkness to the point that darkness cannot contend with it.
Darkness cannot contend with you. Sickness, death, demons etc. can’t contend with you. You’re a light bearer. Shine everywhere you go.
