It is no surprise how frequently the Bible uses “light” as a symbol for spiritual awakening and salvation. Jesus said He was “the light of the world” (John 8:12); and when He left earth, He designated His followers to be that light: “You are the light of the world” (Matthew 5:14) “You”, not “Your Pastor” only, or “Your neighbor”, but YOU.
If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you are the light of the world! Let your life be a source of light-what Jesus called “your good works”-so the lost will be drawn to Christ in you.
“The gospel is light but only the Spirit can give sight.” A. W. Tozer
Let your light so shine before men,
that they may see your good works
and glorify your Father in heaven.
