In Matthew, Chapter 5, we read, beginning with Verse 14, “Ye (meaning Christian people) are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. 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. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father, which is in Heaven.” That is through Verse 16 in Matthew 5.
