We are the light of the world because our Saviour shines through us – (see John 8:12 and Matthew 5:14-16). The world we live is full of darkness. The more holy people we have in the world, the better the world will be. The world sees light through the Saints of the Father. This is why it’s abomination to us to live like the people of the world. Jesus Christ said we’re in the world but we’re not of the world. This is exactly what distinguishes us from everybody else. We are different set of people because of the Spirit of holiness in us.
As children of the Kingdom, our ways of life, our attitude and character should portray light. People of this age should emulate us, not opposite. They should seek our help, not opposite. If we’re light bearers, it’ll be very difficult for the enemy to penetrate into our lives.
We are like the moon who has no light. She accumulates light from the sun during the day and shines in the sky to give light at night. As the Father shines through the Son, so the Son shines through us. The light then shines through us to the people of the world. Wherever we are, in our homes, in our place of work, even in the market place, we are to shine as light. If we leave any environment, the people should miss our light. This shows we’re truly children of God. Therefore, let us remove every trace of darkness from us so that our light can shine brighter and brighter. Remember, “The path of the righteous is like a morning light that shines ever brighter until the full day.” (Proverbs 4:18)
