We serve an excellent, Heavenly Father, who sent the Lord Jesus Christ into the world to be the light of the world and through Him Scripture says, we are the light of the world.
There's something about light that we know and that is: light overcomes darkness. That's the truth that is found countless places throughout the Old Testament and the New Testament. In the Scriptures we see that light is given when the Word of God is given. Jesus is the Word of God and He is the light of the world (John 1).
You are The Light Of The World
We carry the Word of God in us by the Holy Spirit, and so we are the light of the world.
14You are the light of the world. A city on a hillb cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a basket. Instead, they set it on a stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
These Bible verses about light that we provide here, should be used as tools and gauges into the life of the believer for God's word indeed declares that we have received that light. If you look at the book of Revelation, you will see that the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the light of the temple, and Jesus says that He will make us to be a pillar in the temple of His God (Revelation 3:12). And since there is no temple there except the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb and we are to be a pillar in the temple which is Light for the Lord God Almighty and The Lamb are the Light, this means that we will be light givers. Think about this!
Are you a light giver right now. Are you the light of the world right now, in your life? Jesus says that you are! Are you letting your light shine, though?
It is our hope that these Bible verses about light will help to shine some truth on your path; to show you what the Lord Jesus Christ has come to give you.
Light is Eternal Life
The Bible says that this is eternal life that they may know God and know Jesus Christ whom He has sent (John 17:3). The Holy Spirit causes us to be filled with the light because the Holy Spirit fills us with the knowledge of God and Jesus Christ (John 14:26).
It is our prayer here at Alive Christians that you take a Bible verse or two and study it. Use it in your personal Bible study and get inspiration from God as to who you are, so that the righteousness or the light that God has given you will be illuminated for all to see.
Therefore, let your light so shine before men that men may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven(Matthew 5:16).
You are the light of the world, in Jesus' mighty Name.
