Can you hide a city that is sitting on top of a hill?

Its light at night can be seen for miles.

 

If we live for Christ, we will glow like lights, showing others what Christ is like.

We hide our light by:
(1) being quiet when we should speak
(2) going along with the crowd
(3) denying the light
(4) letting sin dim our light
(5) not explaining our light to others
(6) ignoring the needs of others.
 

Be a beacon of truth-don’t shut your light off from the rest of the world.

Matthew 5:14-16

“You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.  No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.
