Week One

Matthew 5:14

I am the light of the world.

Matthew 5:14

You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.

We are the light of the world.  At first glance this seems simple enough, we represent the light of Christ in a dark world.  However, if we look back in Genesis 1:3-4, we see that light was the very first thing God created.  God saw the light and that it was good; He then divided the light from the darkness.  In Genesis 1:14, He put lights in the heavens to be signs for the seasons, days and years and to give light to the earth.

Jesus tells us that we are the light of the world so we must have the same characteristics of the light mentioned in Genesis.   We are good, we are set apart from darkness, we are signs pointing to Jesus Christ, we reflect His glory (2 Cor 3:18) as we are changed into His image.

Are you reflecting His light?

Questions for Thought:

  1. Do you see yourself as a light in a dark world?
  2. How important is light to the world?
  3. What does this say about your importance?
