“You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:14-16, The Message)
Do people see God’s light when they interact with you?
Does God’s light look the same when it reflects off of you as it does when it is by shown by your neighbor?
Do you know what type of light God is calling you to be in the dark?
- Are you a spotlight to expose sins?
- A flashlight to lead someone through the darkness?
- A candle that is the first introduction of light into someone’s life?
Are you different kinds of light in different circumstances?
How do you reflect God’s light to those around you?
