In Matthew 7:14 Jesus said you are the light of the world. Do not hide your light under a bushel by ignoring a friend or brother in need when it’s in your power to help him, or speaking harshly when a kind word would turn away wrath. Let your light so shine before men that they may see your moral excellence and your praiseworthy, noble, and good deeds and recognize and honor and praise and glorify your Father Who is in heaven (Matt 5:16 AMP).

Father, thank you for the Word who became flesh and dwelt among us. In Him was life and the Life was the Light of men. We are children of the Light, walking in Light and we have fellowship with one another, as the blood of Jesus purges all our sin. When we confess our sins, you are just to forgive us and to cleanse us from all wrongdoing. In Christ Jesus, through the shedding of His blood, we are redeemed. Amen.
