Thought of the Day !!

You are the light of the world.  A city on a hill cannot be hidden.  Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl.  Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.  In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.  
                                     Matthew 5:14-16 (NIV)

Jesus told us that we would be the light of the world.  We are Christ's presence in a world darkened by Satan.  With this in mind we need to decide what to do.  Are we going to get excited about this Lord of ours that saved us from sin and death?  Are we going to claim the joy that only Christ can offer us?  Are we going to be a city on a hill that will be the envy of all nations so that they will want to be like us?  Or will we put our lamps under bowls for no one to see the light of Christ through us.  Remember, Christ has offered you a gift.  He has given you the gift of His light.  It can be like a bonfire that will blaze all night long, or it can be like a candle that loses all its oxygen and goes out because you placed a hard metal bowl over it.  The choice is yours.  

In the love of Christ,
