“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden” (Matthew 5:14).
Jesus doesn’t say we will be, may be, or can be the light of the world. No, today’s text offers a definitive statement about who we are as believers and the influence we have in the world. Ours is a radiant and penetrating presence. The smallest light in the darkest room becomes the means by which others can find the way.
