You Are the Light of the World

We'll Leave the Light on for You

Matthew 5 Series


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. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16


Your Light


Your Father gives you to the world to be the light it needs, don't be afraid.


In Matthew 5:14-15, Jesus tells us: “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.15 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."


Your Good Works


Your good works must be seen by others; don't hide them.


Jesus tells us in Matthew 5:16: "In the same way, let your light shine before others..."


Your Father

Your Father's glory is revealed when you let your light shine; praise His holy name!


Jesus expands in Matthew 5:16:

".. let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven."



You Are the Light of the World


Consider 2 Corinthians 4:6:

For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
