You are the light of the world.
When you are born again, you are born anew. A completely new person. No more are you the same old person walking in the deathly darkness of sin anymore. You are the light because you have made your choice, by faith to follow Jesus, now that you know the truth.
You are free! Free from earthly bondage that restricted you to enjoy God and His blessings for you.
Where is this light from?
- The Father of lights (James 1:17) (2 Corinthians 4:6)
- Jesus, the light of the world (John 9:5)
What does it mean to be the light of the world?
Jesus calls believers the light of the world (Matthew 5:14)
1. Like Jesus was the light, we carry the burden of Christ (Matthew 11:30) (Proverbs 15:30) witness (John 1:7)
2. Children of light (John 12:36) (Ephesians 5:8) (Psalms 36:9)
3. Do Good works (Matthew 5:16)
4. Walk in your true Identity & Purpose (1 Peter 2:9) (Psalms 119:105)
5. Walk in Righteousness (Psalms 97:11) (Psalms 119:130) (Proverbs 13:9) (Proverbs 6:23)
Who hates the light?
- Those who do evil (John 3:20)
- Those whose light is actually darkness (Luke 11:35) (2 Corinthians 11:14)
Without the light man is in a drunken state (Job 12:25). Confused and lost, or in a backslidden state.
Get out of darkness, come to Jesus. He will shine His light into your heart. Prepare to meet God. Maranatha, praise God and amen
