The Light of Fame
[content_box_red width=”75%”]WOW Words of Today: You are the salt of the earth…You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it gives light unto all that are in the house. –Matthew 5:13a,14-16[/content_box_red]
Did you know our Father God calls us (the Body of Christ) and even gifts us with a measure of fame? One of the greatest powers of fame is influence. He has called us the children of light (Christians) to be an influence for good. In Scripture, Believers are described as salt and light. Salt preserves, flavors; light illuminates and brings clarity. Both are metaphors of God’s call for us to impact and influence our society.
The Apostle Matthew quoting Jesus said it like this, “You are the salt of the earth…You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it gives light unto all that are in the house.”
He goes on to say, let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven. (Matthew 5:13a,14-16) Of course, we are all given a measure of fame. (light, influence) Each measure given is not the same. Just like in the story of the talents, each person was given a different amount. One was given ten, then another five and one was only given one.
As Christians, we are all famous in our area of influence. We are each given a measure of fame (influence) to grow and multiply. For some of us, we are famous in our family circle or our neighborhood. Others have been given regional or even worldwide fame and influence to spend wisely.
