Praise the Lord
Greetings to you all in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,
In Mathew 5:14 , we read, ‘You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.’.
Our Church motto, “Lighted to lighten” , speaks of our call and vocation as members of the Mar Thoma Church. It tells us of our ultimate aim and mission. As members of the Mar Thoma Church we are commissioned with this vision of mission.
The role of each member of our Church is to spread the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Every believer and member of the Church is given the role of a light. We need to use the light - the abilities that God has given us to lighten others.
Where there is light, there is no darkness. Darkness cannot exist when there is light. Jesus said , “You are the light of the world. Let your light shine before men.” As Christians, we are called to remove the darkness in the world through our meaningful existence with God.
We live in a world where the powers of darkness increases enormously each day. Jesus said, ‘ I am the light of the world : he who follows me shall not live in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” (John 8:12). By following Christ, who is the Light of the world, He will guide and lead us in the right path. For Jesus is the Way, the Light and the Truth.
May God bless each member of the Kuwait St.James Mar Thoma Church to be people of light in this world.
