Light has been defined as something that illuminates, enlightens and informs. It is synonymous with things that are notable, luminous and things that stand out. The world, on the other hand, has been defined as the human society with its inhabitants and all things upon it. It could also mean the concerns of the earth and its affairs as distinguished from heaven and the life tO come.
‘You are the light of the world’ is a direct declaration by our Lord Jesus Christ in His Sermon on the Mount. It contains a revelation of God’s principles of righteousness for us to live a victorious Christian life through faith in Jesus Christ and by the power of the Holy Spirit. The world and Christians are two distinct groups of people. The world is presently in rebellion against God’s rule, enslaved to satan and under his dominion.
The people of the world are in deception and darkness; they have a distorted view of life, values and religion; they follow immoral ways of life and reject the standards of God’s word. 1 John 5:19b says, “…and the whole world lieth in wickedness.” God’s children are meant to stand out and be the light amidst the dark world in their thoughts, words and deeds. 1 John 1:5b says: “God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all.”
To be like our Father and in obedience to Jesus’ command, we are to project all the characteristics of light as defined above and many more. We are to be set apart from the world, its corrupt system, unholy associations, partnerships and compromises. 1 Peter 2:9 says: “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.”
Beloved, God expects you to make positive difference wherever you are. As light in this dark world, you should make impacts like Jesus who went about doing good. Let your light so shine that men will see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
1. Thank You, Lord, for the salvation of my soul, in the name of Jesus.
2. Thank You, Lord, for bringing me out of darkness into Your marvelous light, in the name of Jesus.
3. I reject every spirit of obscurity, in the name of Jesus.
4. Every umbrella of darkness shielding the light of God in me, catch fire, in the name of Jesus.
5. Every satanic cloud covering my light, clear away by fire, in the name of Jesus.
6. My life will be an attraction, not a distraction to God’s Kingdom, in the name of Jesus.
7.I will not frustrate the grace of God my life, in the name of Jesus.
