The Kingdom People Being the Light of the World (2)

Bible Verses

Matt 5:14 You are the light of the world. It is impossible for a city situated upon a mountain to be hidden. (15) Nor do men light a lamp and place it under the bushel, but on the lampstand; and it shines to all who are in the house.

Words of Ministry

[Part 2 of 2]
We know from experience that our lack of anxiety touches others. If every time someone contacts you, you are happy and enjoying the Lord, he will be deeply touched. Filled with anxiety and occupied with all kinds of worries, the worldly people talk about the fear of losing their job or the difficulties they are having with their boss. But the kingdom people, the hallelujah people, those not covered by the bushel, care only to talk about Christ and the church
[His Body]
. By being such a people, we touch the hearts of others and shine upon them from within. This shining penetrates them. The outward shining of the kingdom people is general, and all of society can see it. Society can see a group of people who are built up, situated upon the top of a mountain, and shining. The inward shining, on the contrary, is particular. One of your cousins may be touched by your lack of anxiety and your shining face. Whenever he contacts you, he never hears you talking about how to make a living. Instead, he always hears you praising the Lord and telling how wonderful the church life is. This will be a light penetrating into his being and shining within him. Through the shining of this light, he will be convinced.
