“…I am the light of the world:”
In the scripture above (John 8:12), Jesus introduced Himself as the light of the world, then turned around to say that we (Christians) are the light of the world in Matthew 5:14.
“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hidden.”
In other words, we share similar characteristics with Jesus Christ. Now, if you have the great characteristics that Jesus Christ had while on earth, why are you hiding them?
Light is supposed to shine wherever there is darkness; why do you sometimes go in the midst of darkness and hide your light?
Jesus never shield away from shinning the light of the gospel on anyone that He saw living in darkness.
Darkness can also mean confusion; when people are confused and do not know what step to take, they are in darkness.
When you find yourself amongst people who need direction on what next to do, you should ask God for guidance and relate what He tells you to them.
Shine your light to clear the darkness. Don’t join them in being worried and confused; if you do, you are hiding your light under a bushel.
