“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.” (Matthew 5:14)
My precious friend, today is a glorious day in Jesus Calls. This is the day my father, Bro. D. G. S. Dhinakaran, had a vision of Jesus face to face for 3 hrs 58 years before. It was at this time the mission of Jesus Calls began to wipe away the tears of millions of people through the love of Jesus Christ. We remember this day with love and gratitude and thank God for His mercies that He has showered all these 58 years. This is also the day that Bethesda Prayer Centre in Karunya Nagar, Coimbatore was established nearly 28 years ago. We thank God for the mighty miracles God has been doing for everyone who came to this Bethesda Prayer Centre, meditated, and prayed. I thank you for being a partner with this ministry, praying for this ministry, and giving your offerings to Bethesda and Jesus Calls every month. As we celebrate these anniversaries today, may God bless you.
Today’s promise is taken from Mathew chapter 5 verse 14. Jesus says, my child, “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.” You are the light of the world my child. God is dependent on you for His light to come upon this dark world. The Lord says, “A city on a hill cannot be hidden.” God will make you shine and raise you to great heights for the light that is in you to shine on everyone.
In John 8:12 Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” You have given your heart to Jesus. He is in you shining as the light of the world. Any darkness in life will never overcome you because Jesus the light of the world is in you. The Bible says in Ephesians 5:8, “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light.” My friend, you were darkness embodied when you were in the world, when you were in sin; but now as you are the child of Jesus, you are life itself. So the scripture says live as children of light. Only when you have the light – Jesus Christ in you, the world can receive that light. What a great responsibility you have in this world. Let us pray for this grace.
Give me grace to have you, the light of the world, and do your works to bring forth light into the world and bring forth the light, Jesus Christ, into my family. Let your light shine in me Lord.
I pray this prayer in Jesus name. Amen.
