You are a light

Before I start, I will like to define light as a source of energy that makes things visible. It disperses darkness.
“You  are a light”, Jesus, teaching on the mount, he told the multitude; “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden” Matthew 5:14.

You become light immediately you accept Christ Jesus as your Lord and Savior. You are saved to radiate your environment. Servants of Christ shine with His light in a society that is hopelessly lost, left to itself.
Now answer this question; What is the basic function of light?
To provide answer to this question, is simple, light is to dispel darkness. Darkness cannot remain where there is light. Nothing can hinder the light from shining, Jesus said; “… a city that is set on a hill cannot be hid.” Problems cannot hide you, family cannot hide you. Darkness cannot remain when the light is turned on. As a light, you are a problem solver, no matter the magnitude of the problem or challenge.
Think of some distinctive characteristics of light:
Light gives direction
Light attracts attention. You don’t need to ask other people to look at you when you turn on a light in a dark place or room.
Light is silent. No noise, no big splash.
Light simply shines.
A single light gives direction in a large place.
Light is never afraid to shine in the midst of darkness, it simply shines.
If you are a true Christian, then, you cannot be afraid to shine in the midst of challenges, because, you are a light. They may try to hinder you from shining, but they cannot succeed because “greater is he that is in you then he that is in the world” 1John 4:4.

You are silent, no noise in the midst of challenges. You cannot be heard when you are in a place, but, you are a problem melter. Your presences melt any kind of problem or challenges down.

Another unique characteristics of a light is  that, it can never be afraid anywhere.
Light is bold when shining in that darkness. You cannot be intimidated from shining and the Scripture puts it this way; “And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not” John 1: 5. You cannot  be hidden but simply shine.
Go and shine to your environ, provide solution to the problems that may be affecting people around you. You are unique and distinctive. Go and shine on.
