Today’s verse: “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. ” Matthew 5:14-15.
The world is in darkness. They need a light to guide them out of this darkness. And that is where we come in. As Christians, the light of Christ shines through us out into the darkness if we truly live the Christian life, as it should be lived, at all times. When the world sees this, they are drawn to Christ. Therefore, it is critical that we do not just proclaim we are Christians, but show through our actions that our proclamation is true.
The world needs Christ. But how can they see it if professing Christians do not even live their lives as if it is real? So lets read and study God’s word, and fervantly pray so that we can honor God in all we do, and show it’s truth to a lost world.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Mat 28:19-20
We, as Christians, are called to make disciples of all nations. The word ‘disciple’ comes from the Greek word ‘mathetes’ which means pupil or learner. It is not just to get them saved, but to disciple them as well. They need to understand what being a Christian is really about. Then, they can go out and make disciples of those who accept Christ. This is our mission here on this earth.
