We are working our way through stepping out of our comfort zone and becoming a disciple. This week we are focused on being who and what God called each of us to be. Our Scripture this week comes from Matthew 5:14-16:
“You are the light of the world!
A city on a hill cannot be hidden.
Let your light shine before others.
In the first part of verse 14, we read “you are the light” – and “you” is each one of us. We are the “light” (Greek phṓs), which is literally “the manifestation of God’s self-existent life”. (Strong’s Greek Lexicon).
As Christ followers, our very existence points to God who created us. Just like a city on top of a hill cannot be hidden, our very existence — the words we say, the actions we take, our lives as a whole — shine brightly, illuminating God’s work in the world.
What does this mean for you?
To step out of your comfort zone is literally to step fully into the person God has created you to be, doing the work that He has prepared for you to do.
- Who are you in Christ?
- What is God asking you to do?
- How can you shine brightly where God plants you?
