New International Version (NIV)
14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 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. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
God accomplishes His eternal purpose through His Servant, Jesus, and through His servants the church. The light of the gospel of life brings freedom, release, and reconciliation to the world through the reign of Christ and the message of His glorious gospel!
