Jesus calls us to a life that allows His light to shine through us. In the context of the two verses above, I pondered what it might mean to be a light of the world and thought of the song "Light Your World" by New Song. Copy and paste the following link into your address bar to hear the music and see a few examples of how we can light up our world.
Think About It
As Jesus' followers we want to live our lives pleasing to Him. We want to do what He says. One way is to be light in this world's darkness.
Pray About It
Heavenly Father, help us to be more like Jesus. Help us to be a beacon of your light to people in our world. In Christ's name, Amen.
