A few examples:
You are THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD. (Matthew 5:14)
GET FIRED UP — don’t hide it from the world. (Matthew 5:15)
LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE — so that others can see God working through you and praise Him. (Matthew 5:16)
We’re sitting at Jesus’ feet, listening to the greatest sermon ever preached: the Sermon on the Mount.
Yesterday, we concluded our deeeeep dive into the Beatitudes. Today, Jesus moves right into how we’re supposed to live in this dying, dark world.
Here’s what he said:
We continue our journey into every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.
We’re in the midst of a series entitled JESUS ON EVERYTHING, where we’re looking at what Jesus said on a wide variety of subjects with a minimum of commentary from me.
Today’s topic: LIGHT. Jesus described quite the contrast:
We’re in the midst of a deeeeep dive into this rather provocative question: Who did Jesus say he is?
We started with these three answers: Son of Man, Son of God and Messiah.
Yesterday, we begin a look at eight “I am” statements Jesus made that further define who he is. The first: the Bread of Life.
Here’s today’s rather illuminating installment:
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path. Psalm 119:105
This world can be a very dark place. Let God light the way.
Spend some quality time with your Bible today. Quiet your heart so the Holy Spirit can speak to you. Read a passage over and over until it sinks in. Use your imagination. Interact with it. Meditate on it. Memorize it. Then get out of your chair and apply it. Live it. The world needs God’s light now more than ever.
