HOW TO BECOME THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD
HOW TO BECOME THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD; Being a light in the world means you are living out your calling and purpose as a Christian and follower of Christ. Here’s what is most important. Find your area of influence and be the light within that avenue or space. That is what it means to be the light!
Ways To Revive Your Relationship With God
Let me say that as disciples of Jesus Christ, we are purposed to be the light of the world
The opposite of light is outright darkness
TEXT: MATTHEW 5:13-16
word A light is supposed to shine+Light is what counter darkness
I want us to ask ourselves this questions
Am mine hidden or exposed?
Is it a light on a stand giving light to everyone around or actually in darkness?
Am mine a light that is put under a bowl?
Or a light of the world?
HERE ARE WAYS TO BECOME THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD
1. Know God’s Word
The same is true when it comes to being a light for Jesus. You can’t be his light if you don’t know him… really know him. You might be able to fool people for a while, but your light won’t stay lit once you run out of people to fool.
Additionally, if you don’t truly know who Jesus is—what he expects, how he thinks, what is his truth—your light won’t stay lit. You can’t claim to be the light of Jesus if you don’t use Jesus to fuel that light.
2. Live God’s Word
If you wanted to make a chocolate cake but insisted on using oatmeal instead of cocoa, it wouldn’t be a chocolate cake, would it? Even if you used everything else the recipe called for, without the cocoa, it just wouldn’t be right.
Likewise, if you are going to be the light of the world Jesus calls us to be, you need to know it’s an all or nothing thing. Your light can’t be switched on and off. It is meant to burn 24/7 all the days of your life.
3. Share your light
A light does absolutely no good if it doesn’t illuminate—if it doesn’t reveal what is there to be seen. To be the light Jesus calls us to be requires us to reveal the truth of who Jesus is. To be light means we love as Jesus loves, show compassion and mercy as Jesus shows compassion and mercy, and hate sin the same way Jesus hates sin.
To be the light of Jesus means we light the way for others by sharing the truth of the Gospel with as many people as possible.
By living life with a genuine Christ-like attitude, by supporting missionaries, and by treating the world around you as your mission field, you will be the light Jesus has called you to be.
If you have accepted Christ as Savior, being a light isn’t an option. It is a command. So… get out there and shine!
The sun is the real light but when it goes down, moon reflects light, therefore Jesus Christ is the real light.
Jesus said that he is the light, also said to his DISCIPLES (you and I), that they are the light also
This is not just a declaration you claim, you need to work it out
That statement from Jesus to his disciples is an appointment, but it is your choice to decide.
MAKE IT TO SHINE
For the lantern to shine brightly, the glass has to be cleaned on daily basis
You can say I am the light, but not shinning, because you have refused to work it out
Are you connected to God?
For the bulb to shine, the connection must be correct
Being a light will attract all manner of people to you- those coming to fraternize with you, and those coming to see if they can quench the light.
It is not a word for dancing but for sober reflection
That is to kill you
Men like to oppose you and if possible hide you under a bushel and ceases you from shinning
The light on your altar won’t quench
I pray for whoever cares to say Amen, you won’t be hidden
The light of God in you is what beautifies you
Am mine really a Holy nation, a peculiar people and royal priesthood?
THE INTEREST OF GOD
What is God’s interest in what I am claiming?
Examine yourself if you are still in Christ
I round up with this, God’s interest is me becoming a light of the world so that men will see it and glorify him.
Is your light still shinning, or you are using someone’s light to see, or going dim or totally off?
Please become light
No need pretending to be with the body , when you are not with us
OH LORD MY LIGHT WON’T BE QUENCHED.
If all of us shines together, where will darkness pass through again?
Don’t mind them, mind the assignment before.
