Who is the light? We know Jesus is the Light. Why does he then say to us, “You are the light of the world? Some say Jesus is like the sun and we the moon. He is the Light and we reflect his light before the world. However, Ephesians 5:8-9 says, “for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true),” As in the case of Jesus saying we are the salt of the earth, he is telling us who we are. We are the light of the world! Light reveals things as they really are. Light promotes life not only for plants but also for us. Broken Bones heal quicker by soaking them in sunlight. We need our natural vitamin D! Light is persistent and will penetrate the smallest space with its glow. It even wakens us. Just as we cannot hide a city on a hill or would put a lighted lamp under a basket, we must let our light shine before others so they may see our good works and glorify our Father in heaven.
