Passage 73: Let that Light Shine Before Others. You Are the Light of the World

14 “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.

Matthew 5:14-16

Reflection

Do you believe in Jesus? If you do, you are the light of the world.

Let your light shine before others so they may find peace despite confusion and hope despite fear. 

Prayer

Father in Heaven, will the world go back to normal? Or will it not? The Bible tells me that things are going to happen. There will be wars and rumors of wars. There will be plagues and famine. 

Are we in those times, oh Father?

I see fear among my people. I could sense confusion in people’s minds.  

Father, give me the courage to keep my lamp’s light shining so I may give glory to you.

Father, let me be the light for before so that they can find your peace despite the confusion and chaos.

Father, let me be the light before others so they may find hope despite the despair and lack. 

Bless me with wisdom that I may follow your path as we hold on to this light that you have given to me through Jesus Christ, our Savior and King. Amen.

Challenge

  • Don’t hide the light that you’ve received from Jesus Christ.
  • Let that light shine before others so they can be of use.
You are the light of the world
