What does it mean to live in the light? The world can be a dark place, and as Christians, we’re called to bring the light of Jesus to those who live in darkness. Let these quotes and verses give you a glimpse of how you can live in the light.
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
Give light, and the darkness will disappear of itself.
The fundamental principle of Christianity is to be what God is, and he is light.
It’s not necessary to blow out your neighbor’s light to let your own shine.
You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
We are told to let our light shine, and if it does, we won’t need to tell anybody it does. Lighthouses don’t fire cannons to call attention to their shining- they just shine.
If I forget that it was He who granted that ray of light to His most unworthy servant, then I know nothing of Calvary love.
We are indeed the light of the world–but only if our switch is turned on.
Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.
The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone.
Glory in Christ and you can bask in His light forever.
Words which do not give the light of Christ increase the darkness.
If you have only a little ray of light, show out distinctly that you are for Him.
For it is you who light my lamp; the Lord my God lightens my darkness.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
For so the Lord has commanded us, saying, “‘I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.’”
The darkness of sin may be always pressing at us from every side, but the Light of Jesus has already overcome the world!
