[Jesus said,] “You are the light of the world...let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”
__Matthew 5:14,16

In one of today's verses, Jesus says that we're the light of the world. We get to shine! I Love it! And so do you!

And yet, what I want to know is this: how did we come to be the light of the world when, in John 8:12, Jesus says that he himself is the light of the world?

Simple, Jesus, who is the light of the world, stooped down to shine his light into our darkness so that we ourselves could shine.

So, make the application. Do you ever just get fed up with the darkness in this world? Well, then stoop down and shine a little light of Jesus into that darkness, just like Jesus did for us.

And when you do? The world will indeed become a brighter place.

Study BibleSo have a great day! May it be filled with the light of God's presence, the light of God's glory, an abundance of blessing for you, and an abundance of blessing through us for those who are before us.
