You are the light of the world You are the light of the world. A town built 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. Mathew 5:14-15 Light and

Darkness Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. It is

shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. Ephesians 5:11-12 NIV Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble,

whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things. Philippians 4:8 NIV

Where land ends the sea begins Lighthouses Theres a lighthouse on the hillside that overlooks lifes sea, when Im tossed, it sends out a light that I

might see. And the light that shines in darkness, now will safely lead us oer. If it wasnt for the lighthouse, my ship would be no more. Everyone that lives about us says: Tear that lighthouse down. The big ships dont sail this way, why have it round? Then my mind goes back to that stormy night when I could see the light, yes, the light from that old lighthouse, that stands up on the hill. And I thank God for the lighthouse, I owe my life to Him, for Jesus is the

lighthouse and from the rocks of sin he has shone a light around me, that I could clearly see, if it wasnt for the lighthouse, where would this ship be? (Text and Music Ronald A. Hinson) Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

Matthew 24:35 NIV This lighthouse shows us the way to the Father (John 14:6) : I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the

Father except through me. We cant do without Jesus, our lighthouse. Jesus said, I am the light of The world. Whoever follows

me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life John 8,12 NIV God wants us to show others how to find this way as well. That is why he said in Matthew 5:13-16: You are the light of the world...

Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. This little light of mine, Im gonna let it shine. Let it shine, let it shine, let

it shine. Everywhere I go I'm gonna let it shine Now I know who the saints are. They are people who

let the light shine through them. Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with Gods people

and also members of His household. Ephesians 2:19 NIV But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, Gods special possession, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you

out of darkness into His wonderful light. 1Peter 2:9 The early Christians called themselves saints because they were disciples of Christ. The people were so impressed by the first Christians that they said, Look how they love one another! They were recognized by their love.

Gods love shone through them like the light of the sun through the saints in the stained glass windows. One of these Saints is Lucia of Syracuse. She was born around 283 in Syracuse, Sicily.

In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. John 1:4-5 KJV When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.

John 8:12 Jesus said both I am the light of the world and You are the light of the world. (Mat. 5:14), thus He gave us a task. Even though we are only small

lights compared to Gods light we should let our little light shine in our corner of the world in order to dispel the darkness. If we as Christians live with God our light will shine. Just like the moon reflects the sun we can only

shine when we let Gods light shine on us. We have to expose ourselves to the light of God and let it shine on us! Let us be saints, holy people who let Gods light shine through our lives. Lets
