Jesus said, I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life (John 8:12). He said to His followers: You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put in on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven (Matthew 5:14-16).
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.

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.
