Matt 5:14 You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.

Matt 5:14 "Here's another way to put it: You're here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We're going public with this, as public as a city on a hill.

Matt 25:14 For it is like a man who was about to take a long journey, and he called his servants together and entrusted them with his property.

Matt 25:14 "It's also like a man going off on an extended trip. He called his servants together and delegated responsibilities.

15 To one he gave five thousand dollars, to another two thousand, to a third one thousand, depending on their abilities. Then he left.

16 Right off, the first servant went to work and doubled his master's investment. MSG

John 1:10 Although no one took any notice of him, he was no stranger to the world; he always was there and is himself the author of all things.

11 It was not as though he arrived on a foreign planet; he came to his own, yet his own did not 1recognize him.

12 Everyone who realizes their association in him, convinced that he is their original life and that his name defines them, God gives the assurance that they are indeed his offspring, begotten of him; he sanctions the legitimacy of their sonship.

13 These are the ones who discover their genesis in God, beyond their natural conception! This is not about our blood lineage or whether we were a wanted- or unwanted-child; this is about our God-begotteness. We are his dream come true and not the invention of our parents. You are indeed the greatest idea that God has ever had!  Mirror
