It’s a journey of trust and dependance on God, in a word (or two) a “relationship and partnership”

“I am able to experience God’s presence on earth. God gives me strength and life is a present that God has given to us… and that we are obliged to keep it, to handle it carefully.”

“I am able to experience God’s presence on earth. God gives me strength and life is a present that God has given to us… and that we are obliged to keep it, to handle it carefully.” Faith needs work, like everything else. It’s about individual self-realisation. Senna’s faith provided him with an armour of self belief.

“Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”

“Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”

– Matthew 5:16

You Are the Light of the World

By Robert H. Schuller

“Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”

– Matthew 5:16

You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden”

(Matthew 5:14).

Jesus spoke these words to His followers while overlooking the beautiful Sea of Galilee. Surrounded on all sides by high mountains, the lake is twelve miles long and seven miles wide. Nestled between these hills and the lake were many Jewish towns from which villagers came to hear Jesus.

Every evening the Jewish people had a constant reminder of the oppression of their Roman overlords. At sundown, the mighty Roman legions lit bonfires at their hilltop command post as they guarded and maintained the famous thoroughfares, the Via Maris, and the King’s Highway. In the first century as many as twelve to fourteen legions, each consisting of six thousand men, were stationed in Galilee. Their fires were a spectacular sight from anywhere on the lake.

Jesus’ illustration dramatically punctuated His teaching on the kingdom of God. His call to be a “light – a city that is set on a hill” was a challenge to His listeners. Archaeologists have discovered that as many as ninety Greco-Roman towns were set on the eastern hills. The lights from the town lamps burned brightly above the sea below. The faith of Jesus’ listeners was to be as visible and bright to the people around them as were the lights from the towns and camps that lit up the evening sky.

Jesus’ call is as alive today as it was when the bonfires encircled the Sea of Galilee. Your life will burn with enthusiasm and joy when you announce and advance the kingdom of God. It may begin with lighting one candle by touching one person in your world today. But soon the fire will spread. Your life will be a mighty roaring bonfire encircling your world with the warmth of God’s love!

Light one candle, touch one life today.

Good morning, Lord! Your light is bright. Your love is warm. Your hope is vital. May your light, love and hope flow through my life to others today. Amen.

A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
