Today’s Promise

I Am the Light of the World

Matthew 5:14

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


Light of the World

Jesus brought light into a world filled with darkness. Sin had plunged the world into the dark night of despair and hopelessness. Jesus came as the shinning light of hope, salvation, and freedom. In John 8:12, He promised that those who followed Him would not walk in darkness, but in the light.

Those who walk in the light experience clarity. When you turn on a light, your way becomes clear. When you can’t read the small print, what do you do? You turn on more light. As you walk in the light of Christ, life’s decisions seem to be clearer. When you walk in the light, you see clearly what’s up ahead.

Those who walk in the light also experience security. The shadows of fear disappear when you turn on the light. We have all had that experience of waking up in the middle of the night and seeing a shadow in our room. Once you turn on the light, you see there was no reason to be afraid. A bright light chases away predators, dangers, and fear.

Those who walk in the light experience guidance. Years ago, I did a scuba dive at night. The water was pitch black, but the divemaster had a yellow light on his tanks. As long as I followed the yellow light, I knew which way to go. Highway signs are lit, so you know when to turn. When you walk in the light, God leads and shows you which way to go.

You Are the Light

Jesus took things to the next level when He declared that you are the light. He was the light of the world; now, you are the light of the world. You bring clarity, security, and guidance into the world you live.

Jesus didn’t say, “Try really hard to be the light.” He declared, “You are the light!” Strike a match, and it doesn’t try and be the light. By its nature, it shines brightly. No amount of darkness can overpower the smallest light. The darker the setting, the brighter the light.

As the light of the world, you bring the light of God’s kingdom into every situation. You shine brightly because the Spirit of God dwells in you.

Look at that promise again.

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.” – Matthew 5:14 

Make these confessions.

  • In Jesus Christ, I am the light of the world.

In Jesus Name,
Amen

Jesus declared that He was the light of the Lord. You are now that light. You bring the light of Christ into every situation of life.
