Luke 8:16

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 16 No one, when he has lit a candle, covers it with a vessel or puts it under a bed; but he sets it on a stand, so that those who enter in may see the light. [One who produces fruit becomes a child of light, walking in the light of God; hearing what virtuous words to say, seeing what virtuous deeds to do, while being powered by God's Spirit — thus his words and works show the love of God to the world and bring honor, glory, and joy to God. When a person becomes a son of light, walking in the light, his light will shine brightly in the darkness of the world. There is no such thing as a secret, true Christian, who has entered the Kingdom of Heaven, in union with God, to become a light. God does not hide his lights of the earth. In 17th Century England, when tens of thousands early Quakers entered the kingdom, the Lord said to George Fox: "If only one man or woman were raised by his power, to stand and live in the same spirit that the prophets and apostles were in who gave forth the scriptures, that man or woman should shake all the country in their profession for ten miles round," (and with automobiles, that distance is much greater today.)]
