Almighty God sent His only begotten son Jesus Christ to this world to redeem mankind from the domain of darkness. Jesus says “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me, shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life (John 8.12). The light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light (John 3:19).
Multitudes approached Jesus on His earthly mission so as to hear the transformational teachings. One such incident is recorded in the gospel of Mathew Chapter 5; acclaimed as ‘The Beatitudes’. In this Sermon on the Mount Jesus taught His disciples and multitudes regarding the designated purpose of human existence.
Jesus said to the people around “You are the light of the world. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good deeds (Matthew 5:14-15).
In this fascinating virtual world, generally people adhere to the momentary pleasures and adventures. They forsake the eternal values and moral responsibilities.
Motivational spirit of self-existence
The motivational spirit of self-existence and tough competitions actually impose blindness and hence fail to see the light. Very conveniently people also forget the fact that every secret and hidden things shall come to light sooner or later. Still people prefer darkness because their deeds are evil.
During this time of Covid-19 pandemic, the society desperately looks upon us and demand the light of hope and life. Let this radiant light manifest through our love in action. We ought to be the illuminating stimulation for the deserving aspirant. Allow the light on the lampstand sparkle in darkness.
The Psalmist says that the word of God is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Jesus said that as long as I am in the world, I am the light of this world. But today you are the light of the world and you must transcend and transmit the radiance to all.
Now is the time to act wisely with more of divine understanding and enlightenment. Let your light shine. Try to save at least a few within your reach and direct them towards the righteous path. Be a beacon. Be the sons of the light and sons of day. God is good.
