Jesus said that we are the light of the world. One lamp placed on a lamp stand can banish the darkness from a room; the flickering lights of a hilltop village can be seen for miles around. To a child who awakes alone in the middle of the night, one small night-light can make all the difference. We are that light to a world that desperately needs someone to believe in. In other words, Jesus is saying that what the people of God do in the world really matters. The Gospel is to be lived!
