“You are the light of the world.”
When Jesus chose His disciples, they were ordinary people—several fishermen, a tax collector, a zealot. Yet He looked at them and said, “You are the light of the world.” They probably thought, “Who’s He talking about? There’s nothing special about us.” But down in their spirit something ignited, something came alive. Their seeds of greatness began to take root. They felt faith rising up and destiny calling them. Instead of talking themselves out of it, they got in agreement. “Yes, we’re the light of the world. We’re going to impact our generation.” Jesus spoke the blessing over them. He declared favor and influence for them, and because they agreed, they became the light of the world and changed it. Two thousand years later, they’re still impacting us.
Don’t think of all the reasons for why you can’t be the light of the world. The blessing is a supernatural empowerment, a divine favor that will cause you to impact others. Receive Jesus’ word, let it take root in your spirit, and it will ignite your seeds of greatness.
