Jesus said we are the light of thr world (Matthew 5:14). How do we shine in today's world?

After the beatitudes, Jesus went ahead to tell his disciples that they are the salt of the earth and light of the world (Matthew 5: 13-14). He furthered that light cannot be hid under a bushel. Sadly, today, the world does not want to hear the truth. How then do

To shine in this world, all we are expected to do is to live the life of Christ.

  • We compensate love for hatred.
  • We compensate peace for strive.
  • We compensate forgiveness for hurt.
  • We compensate humility for Christ.

That men may see Christ through us.

Thank you for asking this great question.

As a Jew, and as an Athiest, I feel like these types of posts create an atmosphere of exclusion.

That being said, we should shine in the things we attempt. It doesn't matter if we succeed or if we fail. It matters that we try our hardest.

Jesus Christ answered the question when he said
in Matthew 5:16 ,

"In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."

One of the ways to shine the lightfor Jesus is by doing good works in his name.
