TODAY’S READING – Matthew 11:20-30
TOPIC: A WORLD CHANGER
TEXT: “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be his.” Matthew 5:14
Praise God! It’s another great day to do and achieve great things for Jesus the king of glory. Our opening text conspicuously let’s us know that as a believer, you are the light of the world.
Thank God it didn’t say you are the light of the church, but rather, of the world (cosmos).
Cosmos is a Greek word which represents the world’s system.
Jesus is the light of the Church; the Church is the light the world.
Just the way the moon reflects the light from the sun, so the believer is to reflect the glorious light that proceeds from Jesus.
The degree to which the moon is well positioned is what determines the degree to which it can radiate the light from the sun.
This therefore is a good indicator of the major reason why believers don’t seem to act as lights of the world and world changers.
God desires that we become light to the world and world changers; but only changed men can change the world.
This therefore calls for a responsibility on your path to come into alignment with the ways of God and by so doing, change the world.
As you behold God’s word, you are transformed and that transformation reflects in the world.
“But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the spirit of the Lord.” 2 Corinthians 3:18
My Father, My Father, make me a world changer in Jesus name.
