Matthew 5:14

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 14 You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. [After you are freed from all sin and translated into the kingdom of God, then the morning star (Jesus) rises in your heart, then you have been called out of darkness into His marvelous light, then you share in the inheritance of the saints in the light, then you are walking in the light as Jesus is in the light, then God will have made you to become a child of the light, and then you are the light of the world; through your walking and speaking in obedience to God's continual directions, you will show the world the wisdom, love, and power of God. From the Word of the Lord within: "We demonstrate the love of God to the earth." This verse could have been translated from the original Greek just as correctly to be: "You are to be the light of the world." Jesus said, "As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world," John 9:5.]
