Let Your Light Shine

Jesus said in Matthew 5:14 that we Christians "are the light of the world."  It is exactly what He said about Himself in John 8:12.  It is interesting that Jesus presupposes the darkness of the world.  As we 21st century American Christians wait with labored breath and faithful prayers for our Supreme Court's decision on marriage in this country, it is encouraging to remember Jesus' words.  He knows the world is a dark place and needs us.  It may get darker in the next couple of weeks.  It is already dark.  So let us shine.  Our country may redefine marriage.  But it cannot redefine us.  We are the light of the world.
