“You are the light of the world- like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.”Matthew 5:14, NLT
The Lord says, “Do not conform to the ways of this world; rather, let your light shine bright! Some may feel intimidated by the light that you bring, yet even so, do not dim it to appease others or to ‘fit the mold.’ Be prepared, as some will try to speak against you by making false accusations; however, do not be moved by this. I haven’t called you to blend in, rather, I’ve called you to stand out!
“My children should look and act differently than the ones born of this world, for you have been reborn in Me (John 1:13). I have summoned you to be holy, just as I am. You are a sweet fragrance to Me, the very apple of My eye! I am pleased with the purity that you walk in. As it is written in My word, Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled (Matthew 5:6).
“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.”Matthew 5:8
“I have called you to bear much fruit, and in doing so, others will come and find lodging under your branches. You will be a shade tree to many, so continue to let your light shine and refuse to be moved by naysayers. You are bringing much glory to Me. I am well please with you, My child!”
“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”Romans 12:2, NLT
