The City on the Hill

28 Jan

The City on the Hill…

The image that would become the foundational vision and symbol of American civilization came from the nation of Israel and from a Jewish Rabbi, Yeshua – Jesus.

Jesus said: “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.” These words were directed to his disciples, yet became identified with an entire civilization and revealed the unique greatness of America.

The foundation of American civilization must ultimately be traced back to the Rabbi from Nazareth. The vision of America originates with the Great Commission, the charge He entrusted to His disciples.

It means America is to be a nation of disciples, conceived for the purpose of the bearing the light of God and spreading to the ends of the earth. Even if mainstream American society has forgotten the reason for America’s existence, you don’t forget.

Live as an all out disciple of Jesus. America needs that more than ever. In an age of darkness, lights must shine all the more. In an age of compromise and moral sliding, you must all the more, live your life above reproach, as a light, a witness, as a city on a hill.

You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Matthew 5:14

As the darkness becomes darker, we must become brighter. Strive to be the Called, the sons and daughters of salt and light, keep praying, keep shining.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
