Not going to put it under a basket – NO!

Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.” (Matthew 5:15, ESV)  Our salvation, our born-again relationship with the one true God is not primarily about us. It is primarily about honoring God and witnessing to and encouraging other people. There are no secret agents in the Body of Christ. If the lamp of you relationship with Jesus is hidden under a basket, you might better check to see if you ever had a light to begin with. The light of Christ is not a light to shine inward to yourself but outwardly to the world so they can see your Savior and give him praise and honor – they can see your Savior and be drawn to Christ by grace and be saved by Him. Amen.
