“You are the light of the world…” — Matthew 5:14
I read this verse in a book I am reading. The author made a really good point about this verse of scripture. Jesus says, “You are the light of the world.” This is beautiful, but what is more beautiful is what Jesus doesn’t say. He doesn’t say “One day if you are more perfect and try really hard, you’ll be the light. He doesn’t say “If you play by the rules, cross your “t’s” and dot your “i’s”, then maybe you will become the light.”
He straight out says “You are the light.” It is the truth of who you are just waiting to discover it. Everyone has light in them. No need to change. Just discover it. Be who you are!
You are the light!
