The Beatitudes: The Life of Light (Matthew 5:1-14)
Jesus boldly declared in the course of His earthly ministry that He is the light of the world and whoever follows Him will not walk in darkness (John 8:12). However, He did not stop at that, He extended the assertion to include His followers when He told them “You are the light of the world, like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden” (Matt. 5:14 NLT). He clearly stated their identity and purpose by this statement. The purpose of light is to give direction, guidance, dispel darkness etc. In the same vein, every Christian is meant to be a beacon in darkness, providing spiritual/physical direction and guidance to a lost and dying world.
Jesus is the light that illuminates our lives as His followers and He expects us to reflect that light for all to see by the way we live.
In this study, we will examine the life of light, in other words, the life expected of believers as the light of the world. May the Lord grant us understanding in Jesus name. Amen.
