Do you think of me as being the light of the world? But I spoke to an audience of my followers and said, ‘you are the light of the world’. Are you uncomfortable with this concept?
It would be presumption for you to aspire to this on your own or usurp it, but it was my declaration made on my own initiative. I also said that my Kingdom was within you and that I would never leave you or forsake you. I am present within you and it is through you that I reach out and touch those around you. And so I also tell you to let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify me. I am the light within you. Let it shine in such a way that I get the credit for it.
