“For there is nothing hidden except to be made visible; nothing is secret except to come to light.”
Mark 4 : 21 – 25
|January 14, 2014 Bible Reading and Gospel|
In His Sermon on the Mount, Jesus pointed out what Christian life is like and its responsibilities to God and man. Among many things, He told His followers, “You are the light of the world… Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” As adopted children of God, we are sent into the world to bring light into the darkness, to be a light to others, to make God visible through our good works.
Of course, we have no light of our own. Jesus proclaims in John’s Gospel, “I am the light of the world.” We are like the moon that reflects Christ’s light. We have received the light of Christ not only for ourselves but to share it with others. We are urged by Christ to give away what He has given us.
We who have received the light of Christ and are called “light of the world” are tasked to share this light with a lost and dying world, with those who are lost and searching for meaning in life.
