Can a believer hide the light of Christ Jesus in him???? What the Bible says

Dear all,
Greetings. May God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace.
Word: Matthew 5: 14 –17 says, you are the light of the world – like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.
Thought:
Can you hide a city that is sitting on top of a mountain? Its light at might can be seen for miles. If we live for Christ we will glow like lights, showing others what Christ is like.

We hide our light by
• 1. Being quiet when we should speak
• 2. Going along with the crowd
• 3. Denying the light
• 4. Letting sin dim the light
• 5. Not explaining our light to others
• 6. Ignoring the needs of others
Let us be an inspiration of truth
Have a victorious walk in Christ

“JOYFUL JOURNEY WITH GOD IS INITIATED AND IGNITED IN LORD JESUS CHRIST BY THE POWER OF HOLY SPIRIT”

Total submission to Christ

Dear all,

Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Word: “Jesus Reinstates Peter”

When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” “Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.”  Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.” Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.” The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my sheep. John 21: 15 – 17

Thought:

Jesus asked Peter three times if he loved him. The first time Jesus said, “Do you love me more than these? (Greek agape: self-sacrificial love). The second time, Jesus focused on peter alone and still used the word translated into Greek, agape. The third time, Jesus used the word translated into Greek, phileo (brotherly love) and asked, in effect, “Are you even my friend?

If Lord Jesus Christ asked us the same question today, what will be our response? If we do everything out of love we will never be disappointed. Let us run for the Lord with love.

And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. Roman 5:5

All to Jesus I surrender;

All to him I freely give;

I will ever love and trust him,

In his presence daily live.    Judson W. Van DeVenter, 1896

Stand firm in Christ
