You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.

A. Believers are the light of this world.

"You are the light of the world."

GOD has made the following a light for us:

1. Our paths

Proverbs 4:18 (Amplified Bible)

But the path of the [uncompromisingly] just and righteous is like the light of dawn, that shines more and more (brighter and clearer) until [it reaches its full strength and glory in] the perfect day [to be prepared].

2. Our lives

John 5:35 (Amplified Bible)

John was the lamp that kept on burning and shining [to show you the way], and you were willing for a while to delight (sun) yourselves in his light.

2 Corinthians 6:14 (Amplified Bible)

Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers [do not make mismated alliances with them or come under a different yoke with them, inconsistent with your faith]. For what partnership have right living and right standing with God with iniquity and lawlessness? Or how can light have fellowship with darkness?

Ephesians 5:8-14 (Amplified Bible)

For once you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord; walk as children of Light [lead the lives of those native-born to the Light].

For the fruit (the effect, the product) of the Light or the Spirit [consists] in every form of kindly goodness, uprightness of heart, and trueness of life.

And try to learn [in your experience] what is pleasing to the Lord [let your lives be constant proofs of what is most acceptable to Him].

Take no part in and have no fellowship with the fruitless deeds and enterprises of darkness, but instead [let your lives be so in contrast as to] expose and reprove and convict them.

For it is a shame even to speak of or mention the things that [such people] practice in secret.

But when anything is exposed and reproved by the light, it is made visible and clear; and where everything is visible and clear there is light.

Therefore He says, Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall shine (make day dawn) upon you and give you light.

Philippians 2:15 (Amplified Bible)

That you may show yourselves to be blameless and guileless, innocent and uncontaminated, children of God without blemish (faultless, unrebukable) in the midst of a crooked and wicked generation [spiritually perverted and perverse], among whom you are seen as bright lights (stars or beacons shining out clearly) in the [dark] world,

1 Thessalonians 5:5 (Amplified Bible)

For you are all sons of light and sons of the day; we do not belong either to the night or to darkness.

3. JESUS CHRIST in our lives

John 12:36 (Amplified Bible)

While you have the Light, believe in the Light [have faith in it, hold to it, rely on it], that you may become sons of the Light and be filled with Light. Jesus said these things, and then He went away and hid Himself from them [was lost to their view].

4. The Jews

Romans 2:19-20 (Amplified Bible)

And if you are confident that you [yourself] are a guide to the blind, a light to those who are in darkness, and [that

You are] a corrector of the foolish, a teacher of the childish, having in the Law the embodiment of knowledge and truth—

5. The Church

Revelation 1:20 (Amplified Bible)

As to the hidden meaning (the mystery) of the seven stars which you saw on My right hand and the seven lampstands of gold: the seven stars are the seven angels (messengers) of the seven assemblies (churches) and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.
