You Are The Light Of The World (Matthew 5:14-16)

Terrel Kesterson, February 4, 2018
Part of the series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

When I was a boy, my aunt, who was in her 30s, died of cancer. She was a sweet Christian lady with a firm trust in the Lord. Her love for the Lord and her trust in Him were a wonderful example to everyone who knew her.
Our text is part of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. Just before Jesus began to preach we’re told, “Seeing the multitudes, He went up on a mountain, and when He was seated His disciples came to Him. Then He opened His mouth and taught them” (vv. 1-2). Jesus was speaking to His disciples in the presence of the crowd. Jesus spoke so that the crowd could hear what was saying, but His words were addressed to His disciples as believers. Jesus told His disciples, “You are the light of the world;” from the original text, literally, “You yourselves are the light of the world.” As believers, they were the light of the world.
