Are you a Light?
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.”
— Matthew 5:14
People who are not committed to Jesus cannot see or experience Him. The only contact they have with Jesus is His life and truth that shine through His followers. This means for followers that our lives are not “ordinary” anymore. It has become the showcase for the gospel. It’s not our infallibility or faultlessness that is the light, but our reaction toward God’s truth amid your faults and immaturity. It’s God’s truth in you that shows other people that there is hope, salvation and life in Jesus.
We don’t have to pretend. Be sincere and genuine before God and people. People are not moved by the masks that people wear, but rather by sincerity and truth. Don’t be scared to be genuine. Be vulnerable in God’s truth — it brings godly relief.
