Can you hide a city that is sitting on top of a hill? Its light at night can be seen for miles.
If we live for Christ, we will glow like lights, showing others what Christ is like.
We hide our light by:
(1) being quiet when we should speak,
(2) going along with the crowd,
(3) denying the light,
(4) letting sin dim our light,
(5) not explaining our light to others, or
(6) ignoring the needs of others.
Be a beacon of truth-don’t shut your light off from the rest of the world.
*** Thoughts From Life Application Study Bible Devotions, 5 June 2015 ***
If you really want to live for Christ then you should:
1. Speak up even if it is uncomfortable someone may be between death and life
2. Refuse to go alone with the crowd
3. Proclaim the light of Heaven starting with what Christ has done for us
4. Put sin in it’s proper place, under your feet, stomp out you own sin first
5. Be ready to to explain the light that God has put in your soul and other
6. Stop ignoring the needs of others, open your treasury to the poor
Be the beacon of truth and Love allow God’s light to shine brightly through you!
