Yet I came upon a verse in my devotions this morning that reminds me how inconsistent that really is with Biblical faith. Matthew 5:14-16a reads, “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…”
Don’t be intimidated into hiding your faith in Christ Jesus. You are the light of the world. The world needs your light. The world needs your compassion and mercy, and even more important, it needs to know Jesus, the source of your compassion and mercy.
