“IS A LAMP BROUGHT IN TO BE PLACED UNDER A BUSHEL BASKET OR UNDER A BED AND NOT TO BE PLACED ON A LAMPSTAND?

 

A lighted oil lamp is used  in ancient Palestine to give light inside and outside their homes.

It is placed on a lampstand in order to extend light to different corners of the house.

In the Bible, light is always associated with God’s sign and presence in contrast to darkness.

In Baptism, we receive the light of God’s holiness and presence. And we have the call to share the light of holiness of God to others.

Sts. Timothy and Titus are examples of living the light of God in their ministry.

They share the light in the building up of the church of God in different places of their mission. We must become “LIGHTS”  like them.
