If you follow Christ. If you have given your allegiance to Him and not the ruler of this world (who tells us to worship self above all),then you are called to be a light to this world. Matthew 5:14 says “You are the light of the world.” It’s a simple statement. I have heard several times in the past couple weeks to not whisper where scripture screams and don’t scream where scripture whispers. Matthew 5:14 is clear so I won’t whisper or try to tear this apart. We are the light of the world. Verse 16 says, “..let your light shine before others, SO THAT they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” Notice what it did not say. It did not say to do good and be a light so that you will do well. It did not say to shine your light so that you will prosper or be blessed. It said so that glory will be given to GOD.
We are His servants. It is our job to be the light!
