Light of the world – உலகின் ஒளி

You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden-Matthew 5:14

நீங்கள் உலகத்துக்கு வெளிச்சமாயிருக்கிறீர்கள்; மலையின் மேல் இருக்கிற பட்டணம் மறைந்திருக்கமாட்டாது-மத்தேயு 5:14

మీరు లోకమునకు వెలుగైయున్నారు; కొండమీదనుండు పట్టణము మరుగైయుండనేరదు-మత్తయి సువార్త 5:14

ನೀವು ಲೋಕಕ್ಕೆ ಬೆಳಕಾಗಿದ್ದೀರಿ. ಬೆಟ್ಟದ ಮೇಲೆ ಇರುವ ಪಟ್ಟಣವು ಮರೆಯಾಗಿರಲಾರದು-ಮತ್ತಾಯನು 5:14

നിങ്ങൾ ലോകത്തിന്റെ വെളിച്ചം ആകുന്നു; മലമേൽ ഇരിക്കുന്ന പട്ടണം മറഞ്ഞിരിപ്പാൻ പാടില്ല-മത്തായി 5:14

Prayer – ஜெபம்

Lord, make me light to this world and a city that is set on the hill. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

ஆண்டவரே, உலகத்திற்கு வெளிச்சமாக என்னை மாற்றும். மலையின் மேல் இருக்கிற பட்டணம் போல என்னை பிரகாசிக்கச்செய்யும். இயேசுவின் மூலம் ஜெபிக்கிறோம் பிதாவே. ஆமென்.

Explanation and Commentary on Matthew 5:14

Jesus came to reveal the true nature of His Father in heaven and showed what God is really like. … We must always take care that we fix our eyes on the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ so that we can continue to be the light in the darkness that he left us here to be.

Spiritually speaking, there is no light in the world apart from Jesus Christ. His light, though, shines through every person who belongs to Him. In this way, the light of Christ is distributed into the darkness in every corner of humanity. That this light is meant to be visible to the world is also important. Jesus adds to this metaphor by referring to a city positioned on top of a hill. It is not meant to be hidden; a city on a hill is meant to be seen and found even in the darkness of night. During the time of Christ, the walls around a city on a hill were often made from white limestone, which would be relatively easy to see, even on a dim night.
