We Are the Light of the World 
Susan Barnes

“His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them. . . ‘You are the light of the world. . . let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven’” Matthew 5:1-2,14-16

Throughout the Bible, God describes how he sees us. We are "God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved" (Colossians 3:12). We are “children of God” (1 John 3:2), and here we are “the light of the world.”

While we are comfortable with Jesus saying, "I am the light of the world" perhaps we aren’t so pleased about him saying that we are the light of the world—his representatives in the world.
We don't become the light of the world through extra effort, with more prayer or further Bible study, as helpful as these things are. We are already light if Jesus lives in us. He shines through our lives, and people detect it. They notice our good deeds, not our hard work. These good deeds are motivated by his love and enabled by his grace. They aren’t driven by our need for approval, acceptance or appreciation. We have the privilege of serving God, yet not the responsibility of convincing others.

We may not feel up to being the light of the world. However, the more we allow Jesus to reign in our lives, the more we let his light shine, and this light will radiate from us, attracting others. As we grow in Christ, we learn we are indeed light, not because we have worked hard, but because we have allowed him to shine.

Recent Amazon Review: 

"For anyone on the fence, backsliding, or doubtful this book clarifies misunderstandings, perceived contradictions, and outright lies. I was led to read this book at a time when I thought I was over Jesus; but truth defeats lies every time and never forsakes the believer." 2-18-17
