Stop thinking that you are not good enough for God to use you! The only credentials you need is a heart bent towards God! You are not called by man but by God to be the salt and light of the world and the Message Bible paraphrase nailed what Jesus told the people in the greatest sermon ever preached in Mathew 5:16, “Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.” Jesus also said in John 8:12, “I am the Light of the world.” This is the second of seven “I AM” declarations of Jesus, recorded only in John’s gospel, that point to His unique divine identity and purpose. In declaring Himself to be the Light of the world, Jesus was claiming that He is the exclusive source of spiritual light. No other source of spiritual power or truth is available to mankind. Now look at that Jesus placed us at His level!!!!! Do you need more motivation to come from underneath that basket?? Beloved, let your shine today and believe that you’re divinely purposed to live an illuminating life that glorifies God through service to Him and His people!!
