YE ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD!!
"For this deed of the queen shall come abroad unto all women, so that they shall despise their husbands in their eyes, when it shall be reported, Then Ahasuerus commanded Vashti the queen to be brought in before him, but she came not." Esther 1:17
IN JESUS TODAY!
Ok, this is where every one’s ears perk up, and they begin to listen closely to the next words, waiting to see if the writer will talk about others, as in others do this or others do that. Ah ha! Just as God is not a respecter of person's neither is he in all cases not a respecter of gender. There is so much more here to be told than to focus on gender issues. The concern is, will the action(s) that are taken by one person be allowed to continue if these action(s) are teaching others to do wrong also?
ARE WE TEACHING OTHERS TO DO WRONG…?
Let us all look at in Hebrews 12:1 and we will find it written, that we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses that whatever we do either teaches right or wrong. As we read,
"Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us." Hebrews 12:1
Queen Vashti was teaching other women to do their husbands wrong. Listen regarding gender there are men that do wrong and are teaching others the same, as well as women that do wrong and are teaching others the same, so the larger lesson is… As Christians what are we teaching?
People are watching and learning from our actions how to survive, how to live righteous lives, how to love others, and how to love God. We are the light of the world! And many will follow that light in this darkened world. So Let's teach them about Jesus!
YE ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD!
