Scriptural reading Matthew 5:14-16
As parents we always make sure that we get our messages get across to our children.One of the quickest and easiest way to enter and join them into their world is through animation. The character, color and the story would definitely perk a child and we can easily access into their whole entire being or their realm.
This also holds true to our Father in heaven. He is also doing the same things for us His children. Just as we earthly parents want to make sure that our children would be on the right track and so does with our Heavenly Father. The parables of Jesus is our Heavenly Father’s animation for us. We might not see the way kids do but then again it makes us think and try to paint pictures in our minds trying to figure out these things thus making these parables a kind of animation for us and teaching us what God wants us to do. These things God wants us to do is first will go through into our spirits then to our soul through our emotions and then to our mortal bodies.
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
Jesus always make known to us that He is the “light of the world”.
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
Jesus is our spiritual light in our life. We can never have the light. It will NEVER COME FROM US but rather He WILL SHINE FOR US and therefore we BECOME THE LIGHT of the world. This is what Father God wants to install in our lives the light of Jesus.
A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
As for the continuation and in the same manner, Jesus wants us to know that we being the city set on top of the hill would mean that it would be impossible for us not to be seen by anybody and if a city which is set on a hill this means that we are standing on the strength of God and what ever we will be doing, it cannot be hidden. God will be magnified.
Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. If we are going to sum verses 14 and 15 we will arrive with verse 16.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
The light that shone which resulted the good work came from Jesus is exactly the thing that our Heavenly Father wanted for us to have. A thing that we cannot brag about that it came from us but from Jesus that the Father might be glorified. Once we acquired the SPIRITUAL light( into our spirit) our emotions(SOUL) reacting to the light would produce the GOOD WORKS( our mortal body) and finally glorifying God!
Let us be God’s children to our Father in heaven. God never stops on giving us instructions for our own good…. even if it is animation.. a spiritual animation.
