The Light of the World

Today someone came up and said, "I didn't know you were a Christian." My response was simply, "Yes, I am." But, after I thought about it I realized how sad this was that He didn't know I was a Christian, that he couldn't tell that I was a Christian. I started to think, why didn't he know? How could he not tell? And the only clear answer was that I wasn't living the way I should be. I wasn't living my life in a Christian manner. Now, I don't mean that I need to change the way I walk, or necessarily the way I talk in everyday life. However, I do need to learn to proclaim Jesus everyday. I need to learn to witness for Him all the time! After all, Matthew 5:14-16 says:
You are the light of the world, a city on a hill cannot be hidden. Men do not light a candle 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 so that they may see your good deeds and worship your father in Heaven!
