Light of the world

“You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid” (Matthew 5:14). In ancient times a watch-person would move through the city streets at dusk urging residents to hang out their lights. Today’s Christians are to be watch-persons in the life of the community for which they live, and for Christ’ sake, we should do it with a shinning faith. A Christian that leaves their faith under a bushel basket cannot be the lamp-stand for Christ that is to shine on a hill for which they live’ (Matthew 5:14). Remember that we might be able to hide in a crowd, but we will never be able to hide from God. Emphases mine!
