" You are the light of the world . A city set on a hill cannot be hidden;
nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lamp stand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.
" Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works , and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
… Therefore let us lay aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light . Let us behave properly as in the day, not in carousing and drunkenness , not in sexual promiscuity and sensuality , not in strife and jealousy . Rom 13:12-13
For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness.
So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober. 1Th 5:5 -6
… so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world , Phi 2:15
