“We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves." 2 Corinthians 4:7 NLT
As believers we...
...have the light of Jesus shining in our hearts
...contain this great treasure
...have a great power from God
Understanding this gives us an enlightened perspective on the following statements by Jesus:
“But while I am here in the world, I am the light of the world.” John 9:5 NLT
“Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.” John 8:12 NLT
“You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.” Matthew 5:14 NLT
Like never before, our world needs the light of Jesus Christ.
As we walk in the light, we are walking in the very power of God.
Let your light shine today.
