Bible Challenge – Matthew 5

“You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. 15 No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.” v. 14-16 (NLT)

You are the light of the world …. Shine!  In the Christian lingo this phrase is said a lot, but for some reason it seems that we have tuned out the importance of this passage.  Maybe it’s because we have heard it so much that the weight of these words has diminished in the way the way we live.  There are several things that can impact how bright we shine for Christ. And honestly, some times it’s in the times of uncertainty that we end up shining brightest for Him.

Today, You are the light of the world if Jesus is your Lord and Savior! However, your brightness is totally dependent on how much you surrender! Remember what Jesus says in Matthew 10:39,

“If you cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give up your life for me, you will find it.”
